Fact-based story about the sexual harassment suit filed by Anita Hill during the appointment trials of Clarence Thomas for the Supreme Court during the George Bush Presidential administration. The film gives both parties a fairly even presentation and does not try to assess blame. It does, however, show a lot of background political maneuvering that took place, particularly on the part of Kenneth Duberstein, an administrative spin doctor.

In 1998, Rupert Murdoch
ordered FOX Television to abandon its planned production of this movie, a drama based on the book of that title by the New York Times Jill Abramson
and the New Yorker's Jane Mayer
about the confirmation of conservative Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas
. (It was subsequently produced and shown by Showtime.) According to a New York Times report, Murdoch told an associate that Thomas was a friend of his, and that he had been railroaded during his confirmation hearing. See more
