Charlize Theron and Frances McDormand star in this flick which is based on a book called “Class Action: The Story of Lois Jenson and the Landmark Case that Changed Sexual Harassment Law”….now that’s a pretty big name for a book and it pretty much summarizes what the movie is about plus it has all the regular cliches you’d find in such kind of movies. This is a textbook movie which almost always garners an Oscar nomination for the actors involved. I found it just about okay…somewhat pretentious just like other movies of this flock. While watching this I was reminded of Tom Hanks’ Philadelphia and Jodie Foster’s “The Accused” which I also consider equally pretentious. What irritates me about such films is that they seem to get made only for the heck of getting an award or two. The movie is not boring or anything like that but I wouldn’t recommend this….probably female audiences might like it more.
