Follows one day in the life of Jane (Julia Garner), a recent college graduate and aspiring film producer, who has recently landed her dream job as a junior assistant to a powerful entertainment mogul. Her day is much like any other assistant's - making coffee, changing the paper in the copy machine, ordering lunch, arranging travel, taking phone messages, onboarding a new hire. But as Jane follows her daily routine, she, and we, grow increasingly aware of the abuse that insidiously colors every aspect of her work day, an accumulation of degradations against which Jane decides to take a stand, only to discover the true depth of the system into which she has entered.

91% - Rotten Tomatoes

★★★★★ - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
"Gripping... shrewd and brilliant"

★★★★★ - Time Out
"A harrowing tale"

★★★★½ - James Croot, Stuff
"The Assistant is an incredibly sad movie, but it’s also a compelling and important one.
"This is Garner’s (Ozark) film and she delivers a magnificent performance"

★★★★ - Mark Kermode, Observer 
"A performance of few words but immense physical eloquence by Julia Garner anchors this impressively chilling #MeToo-era drama about workplace harassment and abuse." 

★★★★ - Empire 
"A stirring, sober examination of an ongoing injustice" 

★★★★- Rolling Stone
"Julia Garner is implosive dynamite in this slow-burn tale"

★★★★ - Daily Telegraph
