Misbehaviour (2020)



Critic Consensus: Misbehaviour's overall arc will be familiar to fans of feelgood British cinema -- and so will the way it triumphs over formula to tell a thoroughly crowd-pleasing story.

Movie Info

In 1970, the Miss World competition took place in London, hosted by US comedy legend, Bob Hope. At the time, Miss World was the most-watched TV show on the planet with over 100 million viewers. Claiming that beauty competitions demeaned women, the newly formed Women's Liberation Movement achieved overnight fame by invading the stage and disrupting the live broadcast of the competition. Not only that, when the show resumed, the result caused uproar: the winner was not the Swedish favourite but Miss Grenada, the first black woman to be crowned Miss World. In a matter of hours, a global audience had witnessed the patriarchy driven from the stage and the Western ideal of beauty turned on its head.

Overall... it's highly enjoyable with strong sequences involving mothers and daughters.

It's not really going to dig deep or push hard, but it's going to make a statement in a way that is lovely, warm, and cozy.

September 29, 2020 | Full Review…

Stellar performances can only carry it so far, and when "Misbehaviour" finally puts all its disparate pieces and people together, the result isn't exciting so much as inevitable and hammily handled.

Keira Knightley and Jessie Buckley achieve both laughs and drama...

September 25, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Good intentions, deft performances and vivid dollops of period style and sensibility go a long way to patch over the bumps.

September 25, 2020 | Full Review…

The separate storylines help the film avoid the mistakes made in similar movies, particularly those dealing with feminist history.
