Jane, a recent college graduate and aspiring film producer, just landed her dream job as a junior assistant to a powerful entertainment mogul. Her day is much like any other assistant - making coffee, ordering lunch, arranging travel accommodations and taking phone messages.

Press:

"The Assistant is a stealth bomb of a movie: It barely makes a noise but it leaves a crater in your heart." - Boston Globe

"Julia Garner excels (...) in Kitty Green’s powerfully understated #MeToo drama." ★★★★ - The Guardian

"The Assistant, a very good film, is especially good on power dynamics." ★★★★ - Roger Ebert
