One Night Only: In-person discussion with New York Times editor Rebecca Corbett, interviewed by the NEH/Class of 1940 Distinguished Professor in the Humanities, Professor of Philosophy at Colby College, Jill Gordon.
She Said is the unflinching depiction of the explosive Harvey Weinstein sexual assault story, reported by New York Times journalists Megan Twohey (played superbly by Carey Mulligan) and Jodi Kantor (Zoe Kazan). Along with their editor, Rebecca Corbett, they uncovered decades of Weinstein's abuse, and more importantly, the brave women who want to go on the record. Directed with precision by Maria Schrader (I'm Your Man), the film "takes the macho clichéd nonsense out of journalism in movies: these are not boozy guys being adorable and chaotic, but smart, persistent people doggedly doing their job" –The Guardian. We are excited to host NYT editor Rebecca Corbett, who cut her teeth at our very own Morning Sentinel as she started her career in journalism. Rebecca will join us after the film for a discussion about the Weinstein story, her beginnings in Waterville, and what it's like to be portrayed by Patricia Clarkson.
Free admission, thanks to generous sponsorship from the Colby College Office of the Provost.
