Plot: Follows one day in the life of Jane, a recent college graduate and aspiring film producer who has landed a job as an assistant to a powerful entertainment mogul. Even as she performs the typical mundane task of any assistant, the insidious nature of the abuse and degradation of her position come through until Jane has finally had enough and makes a stand - only to realize how deeply embedded this issue is within the system. -- Chris Kavan

It has at least some idea of what it wants to say about the film industry in a time before #MeToo, but "The Assistant" is so visually uninteresting and basic in its commentary that it ends up as a two-dimensional character study of a two-dimensional character.
