Keira Knightley's Misbehaviour to be released in India on January 22
Directed by Philippa Lowthorpe, the film tells the true story of feminists who disrupted the broadcast of the 1970's Miss World contest
Misbehaviour, starring Keira Knightley, is all set to hit Indian screens on January 22. Directed by Philippa Lowthorpe, the film tells the true story of feminists who disrupted the broadcast of the 1970's Miss World contest.
The film reportedly stresses the importance of gender equality, with a blend of humour and drama. It celebrates inclusivity, feminism, and beauty of all kinds.
"I think what surprised me was I knew absolutely nothing about this story whatsoever, so I first read the script, and I was just like, 'Wow, this is so out there'," Knightley told Digital Spy.
"It's so interesting that it's a film that deals with the conversation of feminism and the intersection with racism, and I feel that that's still a conversation that we're very much grappling with right now. So this is a story set in 1970 and 50 years on, we're still having the same conversation. It felt very current," she added.
Other than Knightley, the film also stars Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Jessie Buckley, Keeley Hawes, Phyllis Logan, Lesley Manville, Rhys Ifans, and Greg Kinnear
