‘This movie is inspiring, empowering and it shines a light on the fight for equality that is still ongoing today.’ David Stratton
Misbehaviour takes you back to the 1970’s, when the controversial Miss World competition was held in London. Despite seeing the crowning of its’ first black female competitor, it is remembered for its protests and disruption. The US comedy host Bob Hope ended up covered in flour, as the Women’s Liberation Movement invaded the stage, claiming that the competition demeaned all women.
Misbehaviour dispenses with the pageantries making for a solid social-political drama. A must-see feel good British Film.’ Audrey Fox
Misbehaviour is an ambitious movie disguised as a feel good Britcom. It cleverly tackles some serious themes, but in a thoroughly entertaining fashion. Mark Kermode describes it as, ‘empathetic and thought-provoking.’ He is full of praise for its production and script which captures all the socio-political tensions of the day. With powerful performances from Keira Knightley and Jessie Buckley, it cleverly reflects the game-changing historical moment where gender and race collided. There are powerful performances from a host of British stars including Keeley Hawes, Emma Corrin, Rhys Ifans and Lesley Manville. (1hr 46mins)
