“She Said”: Release Date, Trailer, Cast, and Everything We Know So Far

He always pulls it off.” This adage was accurate for individuals who ventured to look into allegations of sexual harassment against prominent film producer Harvey Weinstein.

However, The New York Times was able to publish a ground-breaking piece on October 5, 2017, that uncovered Weinstein’s decades-long strategy to settle with the women he had assaulted. The New York Times’s coverage of this topic earned them the Pulitzer Prize gold medal for public service in 2018.

Without the two female reporters who led the investigation, Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey, this article would not have been possible. Almost five years later, Universal Pictures’ She Said is bringing the amazing tale of the exposé to cinemas. The planned American drama is directed by German filmmaker Maria Schrader, who won a Primetime Emmy Award in 2020 for her Netflix film Unorthodox.

She Said covers Kantor and Twohey’s personal and professional lives as they work on the Weinstein probe from the beginning to the end. The movie focuses on these two women who persisted in trying to convince Weinstein’s victims to speak up despite getting terrible threats if they decided to expose the tale.

What’s the True Story Behind She Said?

Harvey Weinstein was purportedly accused of sexually harassing, intimidating, abusing, and raping women for at least thirty years by Kantor and Twohey in October 2017. He had abused women while in his position of authority as a film producer, and then he had forced those ladies to keep quiet about what they had gone through.

He was accused of rape or sexual harassment by more than 80 women. In May 2018, police detained him. He received a 23-year prison term after being found guilty of rape and a criminal sexual act between February and March 2020.

The nonfiction book She Said: Breaking the Sexual Harassment Story That Helped Ignite a Movement was released by Penguin Press on September 10, 2019.

The investigation procedure and the difficulties the reporters faced are described in the book on which the She Said movie is based. Among these difficulties were defining sexual harassment and persuading women who had been coerced into silence to speak out.

The gatekeepers in Hollywood also posed significant challenges for Kantor and Twohey, making it nearly hard to move further with their inquiry at every turn. The book ultimately concentrates on the hard, practical effort involved in upending the structures that defend predators like Weinstein.
