An interesting insight
25 March 2020 | by hooma814See all my reviews

This sheds light on how broken many parts of the American political, news systems and gender power differences are. Women are still well an truly taken advantage of in the modern day, and this movie does a good job of showing us what was going on at this point in time. A time that was so crazy, to the point of Donals Trump becoming president. No doubt there will be many more movies to come that share stories of what actually went down in this time and allowed things like Trump being in power to happen. I'm glad there wasnt actually a lesbian scene with Margot Robbie, that wouldve just been unnecessary and take away from the story. Scenes like this seem more and more common these days just to get extra views and draws away from the actual story.

Overall a good movie. Will be interesting to see how true this movie is when the movie is compared to reality
