Hey, #PayUpHollywood Gets a Movie, or Jan. 31, THE ASSISTANT Seems Like It

by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent

Sometimes you have to wonder if it is "too soon" on a movie like THE ASSISTANT... And then? We're in digital real-time, folks. 

by Screenmancer Staff

So, Harvey limps into court at 67, with a cane… He's Patient Zero of #MeToo. Oh, never mind that red herring intro; actually this is about THE ASSISTANT from Bleeker Street.

Not your Assistant of course, who is paid well and treated like gold, but… You know, other people’s assistants, who slave away with a second job to pay the bills while #PayUpHollywood is finally coming to their rescue. Cut to: Julia Garner in THE ASSISTANT movie, written and directed by Kitty Green. It’s a day-in-the-life of (hell) a junior low-paid lackey in the realm of “powerful entertainment mogul.” It bows Jan. 31 from Bleeker Street.

Take a Spy Glasslook Through the Digital Key Hole Here…

 

 

One thing Hollywood does really well is lick its own wounds via films, and Kitty Green has just released a balm that will hopefully scratch the surface at the box office this winter.

Officially, What Bleeker Street Is Saying

“The Assistant” follows one day in the life of Jane (Julia Garner), a recent college graduate and aspiring film producer, who has recently landed her dream job as a junior assistant to a powerful entertainment mogul. Her day is much like any other assistant’s – making coffee, changing the paper in the copy machine, ordering lunch, arranging travel, taking phone messages, onboarding a new hire. But as Jane follows her daily routine, she, and we, grow increasingly aware of the abuse that insidiously colors every aspect of her work day, an accumulation of degradations against which Jane decides to take a stand, only to discover the true depth of the system into which she has entered. 

Written and Directed by Kitty Green

Starring: Julia Garner, Matthew Macfadyen, Makenzie Leigh, Kristine Froseth, Jon Orsini, Noah Robbins

Produced by: Kitty Green, Scott Macaulay, James Schamus, P. Jennifer Dana, Ross Jacobson
