The movie She Said is based on the New York Times bestselling book of the same name by Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey that laid the foundation for the #MeToo Movement. The sure-to-be Oscar contender arrives on November 18, and we've got what you need to know to watch it. 

Carey Mulligan and Zoe Kazan star as Twohey and Kantor. As journalists at the New York Times, they’re used to big stories coming across their desks but when sordid tales of women being sexually assaulted behind closed doors in Hollywood, they knew they had to take action. 

Together, they started contacting women who had been impacted by this unspeakable violence. They were met with women willing to share their stories and others who were afraid of repercussions

The #MeToo movement was inspired by their work, giving a voice to the countless women who suffered horrific abuse in silence, unable to defend themselves against the powerful Hollywood operatives who utilized a pattern of systemic abuse for their own personal gain.
