Katherine Newbury (Emma Thompson) is a British comic coasting as a longtime host of a chat show. She keeps her writers’ room on a short leash - and all male. But when her ratings plummet, her material is felt to be stale and she is accused of being a “woman who hates women” a new head of the network (Amy Ryan) is itching to replace her.
Katherine puts gender equality on her to-do list and impulsively hires Molly Patel (Mindy Kaling), a chemical plant efficiency expert, as the first and only female on her writing staff.
A tour de force. A hilarious barbed adventure which allows Kaling to play up to her ‘woman of colour’ attributes that don’t conform to tired Hollywood archetypes.
