The Assistant follows one day in the life of Jane (Emmy® Award winner Julia Garner, Ozark), a recent college graduate and aspiring film producer, who has recently landed her dream job as a junior assistant to a powerful entertainment mogul. But as Jane follows her daily routine, she, and we, grow increasingly aware of the abuse that insidiously colors every aspect of her workday, 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. Also starring Matthew Macfadyen (Succession), The Assistant is "a powerful movie about the ways power enforces silence" (Vanity Fair).
