About this movie

Follows one day in the life of Jane (Julia Garner), a recent college graduate and aspiring film producer, who has recently landed her dream job as a junior assistant to a powerful entertainment mogul. Her day is much like any other assistant's - making coffee, changing the paper in the copy machine, ordering lunch, arranging travel, taking phone messages, onboarding a new hire. But as Jane follows her daily routine, she, and we, grow increasingly aware of the abuse that insidiously colors every aspect of her work day, an accumulation of degradations against which Jane decides to take a stand, only to discover the true depth of the system into which she has entered.

If I could I would give it 0 stars. It is cheerfully boring as F... k. The best thing about was when it ended. 87 min of waiting for something to happen. The hightlight was Jane (Julia Garner) talking to her father by phone at the end of the movie while having a muffin. I can only compare the excitement of this movie to a chess match by radio.

Well acted, well written. Only problem is script goes no where, characters do nothing. Waste of everyone's Talent and everyone's time including ours which means HARD DON'T BUY.

I see a lot of people in the comments don't understand subtlety... Perhaps Marvel will be more to y'all taste!
