Of the top 100 grossing films of 2017, 90% were directed by men. Of those films, male characters received twice as much screen time as female characters. These statistics are probably not surprising to any woman who has worked in the film industry; but for the rest of us, those are shocking numbers. So how did we get here? If women make up 50% of the human population, then why are we so underrepresented? Why aren’t our stories being told? Providing the answers to these questions and many more, THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING is an enlightening, highly informative, and deeply moving documentary about sex discrimination and the #MeToo Movement in Hollywood. Recognizing that sexual harassment and abuse are biproducts of employment inequality, several brave women are pushing back and uniting to say enough is enough. Subjects of the film include Gena Davis, Meryl Streep, Natalie Portman, Taraji P. Henson, Reese Witherspoon, and Cate Blanchett—just to name a few. And if these star appearances aren’t enough to grab your attention, the cold hard facts of gender discrimination will. —G.S.
