About the Movie
When feminist filmmaker Cassie Jaye sets out to document the mysterious and polarizing world of the Men's Rights Movement, she begins to question her own beliefs. Jaye had only heard about the Men's Rights Movement as being a misogynist hate group aiming to turn back the clock on women's rights, but when she spends a year filming the leaders and followers within the movement, she learns the various ways men are disadvantaged and discriminated against. The Red Pill challenges the audience to pull back the veil, question societal norms, and expose themselves to an alternate perspective on gender equality, power and privilege.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The Red Pill (the title is a reference to The Matrix) only exacerbates [the] divide with its uncritical, lopsided presentation and inability to craft a compelling argument regarding a topic this controversial.
Rotten: There's no doubt that men do sometimes do suffer mistreatment from the courts or from the women in their lives. What the film and the movement fail to demonstrate is any kind of systemic cause.
Don't believe the anti-hype
this film has gotten a lot of negative press from people that have never even watched it. do yourself a favor and watch it yourself before you believe what some people say about it!
Watch before you believe what you hear
I went into this movie expecting it to be very biased but it was pretty even. It was about men's issues and not why feminism is bad, but it doesn't whitewash their history either
I'm a woman that was born in a third world country and it's refreshing to see people focusing on men's rights issues too. This is why I'm an egalitarian. Feminism is for third world countries in the first and second wave. Egalitarianism is for first world countries that have equal rights between men AND women. A lot of first world feminism needs the pain of third world women to fuel their repulsive first world agenda anyway. Societal norms are NOT oppression. Sheesh. You'd think they know that. I've seen acid being thrown at a woman's face for saying no to a guy. Western feminists are really arrogant and are always trying to make women sound like victims.
