She then finds herself under the fire of criticism and abandoned by her colleagues. Meanwhile, a young recruit Kayla Pospisil is determined to appear on the air. But when Ailes asks her to “prove her loyalty”, she must choose her side, that of Ailes or that of the two women who accuse her.

Le Did you know?

  • Nicole Kidman, Charlize Theron and John Lithgow, but also Malcolm McDowell, Richard Kind and Tony Plana underwent a physical transformation for the needs of the film and notably wore facial prostheses. Nicole Kidman had to don a full jumpsuit to give her wider hips and a bigger bust.
  • To slip into the skin of her character, Charlize Theron studied sound recordings of Megyn Kelly and studied her interviews. She worked with Carla Meyer, language coach, to have a voice with a deep timbre. She spent three hours every day in the hands of makeup artist Kazu Hiro in order to look, thanks to prostheses, like the Fox News reporter. This step was on the own initiative of the actress who needed not to recognize herself.
