In 1970, the Miss World competition took place in London, hosted by US comedy legend, Bob Hope. At the time, Miss World was the most-watched TV show on the planet with over 100 million viewers. Claiming that beauty competitions demeaned women, the newly formed Women’s Liberation Movement achieved overnight fame by invading the stage and disrupting the live broadcast of the competition. Not only that, when the show resumed, the result caused uproar: the winner was not the Swedish favourite but Miss Grenada, the first black woman to be crowned Miss World. In a matter of hours, a global audience had witnessed the patriarchy driven from the stage and the Western ideal of beauty turned on its head.

Directed by Philippa Lowthorpe. Starring Keira Knightley, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Jessie Buckley.

★★★★ - The Guardian
There's a very British sort of wackiness to this bizarre and farcical true story from the annals of pop culture, told here with charm and fun."

★★★★ "A feelgood film" - London Evening Standard 

★★★★  - The List
"Misbehaviour shows how challenging conventional notions of beauty is as worthy a fight as tearing the whole damn thing down."

★★★★ - Irish Times
★★★★  - Financial Times
