Confirmation

Confirmation

Fairly gruelling but well-assembled historical drama covering the Anita Hill/Clarence Thomas hearings around sexual harassment.  Amid the distraction of “Where do I know her from?!” (Kerry Washington, the mother from Little Fires Everywhere), the main response from us was incredulity at the dismissive attitudes portrayed to the womens’ stories – serving as a reminder that though it feels like lots of progress has been made since #metoo culturally this planet’s still very much in the Dark Ages on these issues, and most of it has been for a very long time.  Sobering!
