“Emma Thompson plays the late-night host Katherine Newbury in this smart and breezy comedy. It’s some of her very best work, which is saying a lot.” – A.O. Scott, The NY Times
Legendary late-night talk show host’s world is turned upside down when she hires her only female staff writer. Originally intended to smooth over diversity concerns, her decision has unexpectedly hilarious consequences as the two women separated by culture and generation are united by their love of a biting punchline. Stars Emma Thompson, Mindy Kaling, Hugh Dancy, and John Lithgow.
