Based on the New York Times investigation, "She Said" follows the story of how reporters Megan Twohey and Jodi Kanton (Carey Mulligan and Zoe Kazan) went from underdogs to inspirations by shattering the silence surrounding sexual assault in Hollywood. Determined to expose the truth many fear to tell, Megan and Jodi's partnership shakes up the system, empowwering courageous women to retake their strength through stories of survival.

Special features include the featurette "Breaking The Story" (HD 06:43), theatrical trailer, upfront previews and a Movies Anywhere digital copy.

The 1.85:1 2160p HEVC/H.265 Ultra HD picture, reviewed on a Sony Bravia Z9D 4K Ultra HD HDR display, was photographed digitally using the Arri Alexa Mini camera system and sourced from a 2K master Digital Intermediate format. The picture's color palette and production design are natural throughout. Hues are generally natural though saturation is not always constant, with some scenes more pronounced than others. Contrast is generally good, especially during closeups. Blacks are deep, shadow are revealing and white levels are natural. Resolution is excellent with fine detail exhibited in facial features, clothing fabrics and object texture. This is a satisfying picture that exhibits generally natural color. (Gary Reber)

The DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1-channel soundtrack is very frontal focused with the exception of the orchestral score, which is aggressively enveloping throughout the soundfield. As a dialogue focused soundtrack the dialogue is intelligible but very forward sounding and wanting in spatial integration. As for atmospherics, the sounds are frontal as well. Overall, this is compelling dialogue storytelling. (Gary Reber)
