If you watched this movie on based on the trailer, you're going to be disappointed. A very bleak and realistic look at corporate culture and abuse of power in the movie industry and how it is normalized. The movie takes its time establishing itself and is presented as a more grounded look at the subject matter rather than an overly-dramatized movie version of reality. This works to the movie's benefit in my opinion, as it makes the events of the film more disturbing and real to the viewer. Great performances in the film reinforce the realistic nature of the presentation and make for a unique viewing experience.

The Assistant was one of the movies I was most excited to see at Sundance. I went in with the wrong expectations however, as the trailer and synopsis both seem to be selling it in a different light than what this was. Julia Garner does a great job playing an assistant that grows increasingly aware of the situation she's working in. The movie takes place over a single day, but this is where it starts to lose me. Typically slice of life movies are my thing, but something about The Assistant just really didn't deliver. I left the movie wanting a lot more than what I got, and about 2/3rds of the way through it really started to feel like it was dragging on. Even with a runtime of 85 minutes. Overall, I think you could go in with the right expectations and you might enjoy it, but I'd have a hard time recommending people take the time out of their day to see it.

Foregoes sensationalism for the minutia of reality and the film is all the better for it. Julia Garner gives a great, understated performance in this saddening story of male power.

“The Assistant,” a timely story about abuse of power in the workplace, left me shaken and angry. This quietly devastating film about a young assistant (Julia Garner) to a prominent entertainment executive is inspired by the Me Too movement (and clearly, the bad actions of Harvey Weinstein).

You'd be hard-pressed to find a film that moves with such unassuming intensity as 'The Assistant', a film that demands full attention from its audience to tell a frustratingly normalised story of frustrating normalised harassment. It's a quiet film brimming with power, one that is not to be missed.
