Julia Garner is “a revelation!”(IndieWire) as 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’s — making coffee, ordering lunch, arranging travel accommodations, and taking phone messages. But as Jane follows her┬ádaily routine, she grows increasingly aware of the insidious abuse that colors every aspect of her workday–an accumulation of degradations against which she decides to take a stand.
