'Bombshell' Brings a Powerful Story to the Winter KCET Cinema Series on December 3
Q&A immediately following with director Jay Roach.
Based on a true story, several female employees at Fox News take on a toxic male culture and expose sexual harassment that leads to the downfall of media mogul Roger Ailes. Written by Oscar-winner Charles Randolph ("The Big Short"), the drama features an ensemble cast including Charlize Theron as Megyn Kelly, Nicole Kidman as Gretchen Carlson, Margot Robbie as a young producer and John Lithgow as Roger Ailes. The supporting cast includes Jennifer Morrison, Kate McKinnon, Allison Janney, Connie Britton and more.
The movie, Robbie says, is “a political thriller, but it’s not so much about politics. It’s ultimately about people, coming together to take down a very powerful person who is abusing that power. That’s a very satisfying thing to watch.”
The film screens at 7:00 p.m. at the ArcLight Cinemas in Sherman Oaks. Immediately following the screening, Deadline’s chief film critic Pete Hammond, who can also be seen on KCET’s Must See Movies, will moderate a Q&A session with director Jay Roach. “Bombshell” will be released by Lionsgate on December 13, 2019.
The winter season of the KCET Cinema Series runs October 22 through December 10. The winter series is sold out and there will not be walk-up admissions available for the screenings.
