The Assistant Hollywood 2020 Full Movie Download mp4. It is a 2019 American drama film.
Excellent carefully crafted observation of a toxic work environment. inspired by the Weinstein story. Its not a movie for everyone. Its not in your face with lots of action or a satisfying resolution.
While the supporting characters tacitly accept this toxic situation, the Assistant is only the one to speak up and express her concerns and that is treated with bullying and a cover up. So the situation continues. Its a sad disturbing tale.

I can easily see why someone wouldn’t like this movie, but as a woman, I found it very impactful. Much of it covers the mundane tasks the main character, Jane, does while working for a media mogul whose presence is never seen, but always felt.
Nothing much happens, but a serious unease hovers over the whole movie. Throughout nearly every scene Jane endures some kind of small sexism.
She and her male coworkers are all assistants, and yet she is the one who is tasked with all the stereotypically “feminine” tasks – cleaning up after people, ordering and serving food, calming down irate individuals, usually women, on the phone.
In the one instance where she is equally as brusque with someone as her male counterparts are on a regular basis, she calls back and apologizes for being so brash, something neither of her male coworkers ever do.
When she finally speaks her concerns regarding a new coworker perhaps being taken advantage of, she is met with not just disbelief, but accusations of being ungrateful and not willing to do what it takes to make it in the entertainment industry.
She’s told to worry about herself, that she’s not this media mogul’s type, that she has nothing to worry about. But just the fact that this movie even exists, and that so many people can relate to this kind of behavior at work, behavior that isn’t so wrong you can write it down on a complaint card, but is wrong enough that it wears down on you day in and day out, is something to worry about.
If you want a fast paced plot, this movie will probably bore you. But if you want a strongly directed, low-key movie with a great leading performance that makes a very relevant point about the unequal dynamics in the workplace, you’ll love this.
The lighting was the highlight of the film. Julia Garner is brilliant in her performance as the assistant. She was nameless and could be so many others in a similar situation.She worked long hours and received no thanks.
she had to do every sort of task in the office including cleaning it at the end of the day,She sees the boss sexually assaulting a new staff member.When she tries to complain the manager turns on her. It is all so believable. A superb film.
