The title Bombshell is a clever one. There are two meanings to the word Bombshell, first is ‘an unexpected and surprising event, especially an unpleasant one,’ the second is ‘A very attractive women.’ The title fulfils the purpose of the film as it is about women empowerment, and taking down a giant whos chickens had come home to roost.
Roger Ailes was a powerful man. The founder of Fox Channel, media consultant to Several American presidents, Like Nixon, Bush, and Raegan, and Trump also. But all bad things must end. He had to resign due to sexual harassment allegations in the revolutionary #metoo wave. In my opinion, the world needs such films.
The iconic trio of Nicole Kidman, Charlize Theron, and Margot Robbie play the roles of Megyn Kelly, Gretchen Carlson, and Kayla Pospisil respectively. These three women changed the course of the future in the workplaces of America. Lionsgate is aiming the movie for December 20 release, which means they are seeking for a few Oscar nominations for the film.
I think the film will have some hard to watch scenes, but the younger generation needs to know what women face in the workplace, and how helpless they were back in the day. But those days are gone, and monsters will now have to behave like gentlemen. Bombshell will prove to be an essential film. The good of women can only come with revolutions. That’s what the film will be about, and that’s precisely what you should expect.
