Screener Squad: Misbehaviour

Misbehavior Movie Review


Keira Knightley and her stunning cheekbones lead an all-star ensemble in this re-telling of one of the key events in the women’s movement. It’s 1970 in London and while many are eagerly anticipating the annual Miss World pageant, graduate student Sally Alexander (Knightley) decides to help mastermind a protest against the sexist, old fashioned mores and rules that dominate the pageant and society. Jessie Buckley is her co-conspirator, Rhys Ifans is the pageant head, Gugu Mbatha-Raw is a hopeful contestant and Greg Kinnear is…Bob Hope. Listen as our round of dudes, including Frank, Lewayne, Doggett and Adrian, revisit this groundbreaking moment in the women’s liberation movement.
