“People don’t stop watching when there’s a conflict. They stop watching when there isn’t one”

Nominated for three Academy Awards, Bombshell unravels the incendiary story of the women who took on the exploitative atmosphere at Fox News and the man who presided over it all – Roger Ailes. Megyn Kelly (Charlize Theron) is dealing with the explosive fallout over the 2016 Republican Debate when her former colleague Gretchen Carlson (Nicole Kidman) announces a lawsuit against Ailes (John Lithgow) alleging sexual harassment. Prompting other women to come forward with their own stories, the controversy ignites a vitriolic internal struggle, all while new hire Kayla Pospisil (Margot Robbie) tries to navigate the minefield of a toxic workplace. Along with its Oscar-nominated leading players, Bombshell has been laden with awards for its uncanny use of makeup and prosthetics, and the film manages to carefully recreate a very recent piece of history with stunning attention to detail.
