Series: Feminist March

This is part of Feminist March 2018

A high-functioning news producer (Holly Hunter) finds herself strangely attracted to a vapid anchorman even though she loathes everything he personifies. To make matters worse, her best friend, a talented but not particularly telegenic news reporter, is secretly in love with her. 

Presented by local writer Courtenay Hameister, author of the Portland Mercury column "What's She Mad About Now?" and the upcoming memoir collection OKAY FINE WHATEVER: THE YEAR I WENT FROM BEING AFRAID OF EVERYTHING TO ONLY BEING AFRAID OF MOST THINGS, who considers this film a personal feminist classic.
