If you want to see the definitive best film of the decade, She Said, is on this week in Byron. It’s about the two New York Times women reporters who broke the story on sexual harassment in the movie industry, with Harvey Weinstein as the main subject of investigation. 

This is what sparked the #MeToo movement. There are no car chases, no manipulative tear-jerking moments. It is a cut-to-the-bone, no-dramatisation account of the various women’s assaults and events; yet riveting and emotive. 

Every teenager should see this film.
