Focusing on the sexual harassment scandals around Roger Ailes and his subsequent downfall, Theron is portraying Megyn Kelly and Kidman is Gretchen Carlson. Theron especially is unbelievably striking as Kelly. Through her performance and the skills of the make up artists, she would make Kelly herself take a second glance.
Bombshell also stars Kate McKinnon, Stephen Root, Connie Britton and Allison Janney, John Lithgow, and Malcolm McDowell. Directed by Jay Roach, the film drops on December 20 and is sure to be in the awards season discussion. Just the kind of movie you want to see when visiting your parents over Christmas!
