MOVIE NEWS – While She Said is Coming to Cinemas, Harvey Weinstein’s trial is underway in Los Angeles: the once powerful Hollywood producer is accused of numerous sexual crimes. The ex-producer was already sentenced to 23 years in prison in the first trial, and his prospects are not good now either.
In the current trial, the judge always dismissed the jury ex officio at the end of the sessions, telling them not to consume media content related to the case, because it could influence them. Now a new element has been added to the warning: jurors are not recommended to watch the trailer of the movie She Said. The production is about how two journalists investigated what Weinstein had been doing for three decades, and how the publication of the report about it led to the downfall of the producer.
Weinstein and his legal team requested weeks ago to delay the release of She Said because the film could create an unfavorable atmosphere for the accused. The court rejected the request.
The film stars two-time Oscar nominee Carey Mulligan and Zoe Kazan as investigative journalists Megan Twohey and Jodi Kantort, who themselves participated in writing the script, and the creators even wove their personal lives into the story of the investigation. She Said already received an extremely positive critical reception before the wide release, the main characters are mentioned as Oscar hopefuls, and even one of the supporting characters, Samantha Morton, is also considered a candidate for the award.
