Storyline

Katherine Newbury (Dame Emma Thompson) is a pioneer and legendary host on the late night talk show circuit. When she's accused of being a "woman who hates women", she puts affirmative action on the to-do list, and - presto! - Molly (Mindy Kaling) is hired as the one woman in Katherine's all-male writers' room. But Molly might be too little too late, as the formidable Katherine also faces the reality of low ratings and a network that wants to replace her. Wanting to prove she's not merely a diversity hire who's disrupting the comfort of the brotherhood, Molly is determined to help Katherine revitalize her show and career - and possibly effect even bigger change at the same time.

a Character Piece you don't see on late night tv.
11 September 2019 | by lightheartedbeingSee all my reviews

Emma Thompson is one of those actors that spans the range of roles, and makes every character real. This behind the scenes look at Late Night hosted by a successful now 56 year old woman had moments of humor, some social issues, Hollywood issues, and ends up deciding to do something different, be real. It does fall in the range of a good film, but not a great one, an enjoyable film not a laugh riot. The character is a driven woman who succeeded in a man's world, and the cuts of her hair, her pant suits, even how she behaves is very masculine, what women often do to succeed in a man's world. The character is layered and interesting as she walks through a kind of mid-life crisis, career and husband. It's more of a character piece, which I prefer anyway. A good evening's watch.
