87 mins – USA 2019 – Dir: Kitty Green
Starring: Julia Garner, Matthew Macfadyen and Makenzie Leigh

Jane (Julia Garner) is a recent college graduate and aspiring film producer who has recently landed her dream job as a junior assistant to a powerful movie mogul. Her day is much like any other assistant’s, but as Jane follows her daily routine, she grows increasingly aware of the questionable behaviour of her boss toward her female peers. She decides to take a stand, only to discover the true insidious nature of the system into which she has entered.

The Assistant is the fictional feature debut from acclaimed documentary filmmaker Kitty Green. With a strong central performance from Garner (Ozark, Dirty John), this is a thought-provoking and riveting drama that explores the harassment and abuse that takes place in the entertainment industry.
