    The Assistant

    ★★★★½

    The Assistant captures a ‘day in the life’ of a young assistant working at an unnamed Big Entertainment Production company. As she goes about her day doing random, monotonous, and repetitive tasks; taking phone calls, writing emails...it becomes clearer and clearer that something is very wrong. 

    While I have never personally experienced corporate bullshit anything like what this film portrays, I know of so many women who can relate to this. The scene with the HR rep was unnervingly deliberate…

    ★★★★½

    PLEASE watch this.
