Two-time Academy Award® nominee Carey Mulligan (Promising Young Woman, An Education) and Zoe Kazan (The Plot Against America limited series, The Big Sick) star as New York Times reporters Megan Twohey and Jodi Kantor, who together broke one of the most important stories in a generation–a story that helped propel the #Metoo movement, shattered decades of silence around the subject of sexual assault in Hollywood and altered American culture forever.
Acclaimed German actress Maria Schrader is best known for her starring role in the lauded 1999 period drama “Aimée & Jaguar,” but she is also an accomplished screenwriter and director. She directed the award-winning 2007 film Love Life and the 2020 Netflix miniseries Unorthodox, for which she won the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Directing for a Limited Series.
“The film’s strength is in its slow-build, the cross-cut and a screenplay which pays close attention to every little detail.” ~ Fionnuala Halligan, Screen International
“Maybe it’s strange that a film about rampant abuse should feel so warm, but She Said is heated by its steadfast compassion, its determination that the right thing be done and remembered.” ~ Richard Lawson, Vanity Fair
