Synopsis by Olivia Cantor
Based on true events, Keira Knightley plays Sally Alexander, the English activist who helped found the Women’s Liberation Movement in the 1970s. The group catapults to national attention when they disrupt the popular Miss World beauty pageant being held in London in 1970, when Miss Grenada candidate Jennifer Hosten (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) becomes the first Black woman to win the title. Greg Kinnear co-stars as Bob Hope who hosts the event and becomes controversial because of his sexist-tinged comedy act. Directed by Philippa Lowthorpe.
