Bombshell- Movie Review

Director Jay Roach”s “Bombshell” is a competently made dramatization of the fall of Fox News Head, Roger Ailes. It will be familiar to anyone who has been paying attention to the discussions provoked by the #MeToo movement and also to more women professionals, for that matter.

It captures the unspoken pressures that keep sexual harassment victims silent and force them into situations where it seems almost impossible to say “no” with enough authority to make the predator stop.

This film gives us an insight into Fox News Corporation, through the eyes and experiences of three key women: Megyn Kelly (Charlize Theron) the superstar prime-time anchor, Gretchen Carlson (Nicole Kidman) the on-the-decline co-host of the show “Fox & Friends” and Kayla (Margot Robbie) a completely complexed and naive fictional character who is trying to work her way up the Fox Ladder.
