According to independent.co.uk, the film documents the sexual harassment allegations made against Roger Ailes, Fox News' former chairman and CEO, in 2016.
Theron plays Megyn Kelly, a former Fox News star who later moved on to NBC (before being fired in October, 2018), while Kidman plays Gretchen Carlson, who filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against Ailes.
Ailes died in May 2017 and the lawsuit was settled.
The film beings with Carlson’s allegations and depicts the repercussions on the network as well as it’s employees, who must choose which side to stand on.
Margot Robbie plays Kayla Pospisil, a fictional character who is a junior Fox News employee, while John Lithgow plays Ailes.
The film will be released in December.
Meanwhile, yesterday Briefly.co.za reported that Charlize Theron grew up in South Africa during the time of apartheid and admits that it benefited her as a white woman. White privilege is a touchy subject that has caused many heated debates. Apartheid made people of colour suffer and allowed white people to flourish.
Briefly.co.za learnt that Theron spoke out on white privilege during a conversation with David Oyelowo at an annual fundraiser to support educational and health initiatives for Nigerian children, according to a Variety report.
The Oscar-winning actress admitted that she had benefited from apartheid by means of white privilege but she’s using it to help those who didn’t.
