Based on the unfortunate, yet inspiring true story, Bombshell illustrates the 2016 incident involving beautiful, young female broadcasters, and Roger Ailes, the chairman and CEO of FOX news.

This movie shows three main women who all have different lives, but share two similarities; working at FOX News and haven been sexually assaulted and harassed by the filthy chairman, Ailes. 

The three main women are Megyn Kelly, played by Charlize Theron, Gretchen Carlson, played by Nicole Kidman, and Kayla Pospisil, played by Margot Robbie

So far, this movie has been nominated for 47 different awards, and has won 14. It is even nominated for three Oscars. 

This is a movie that I really hadn’t heard about prior to a mention by a friend, but I was instantly captivated by the storyline and production that this movie was after the few minute trailer. 

As a woman, I felt moved by the powerful women who choose to stand up for themselves and the extremely inappropriate and unfair treatment they suffered, and it made me do more research into the events that happened. I was unaware of the events that happened at this time, and so I felt that I needed to learn more of the facts on my own.

This movie is extremely compelling, and I am glad I was able to see it before it left theaters. I hope to see this movie successful at the Academy Awards coming up.
