The Assistant follows one day in the life of Jane (Emmy® Award winner Julia Garner, Ozark), a recent college graduate and aspiring film producer, who has recently landed her dream job as a junior assistant to a powerful entertainment mogul. But as Jane follows her daily routine, she, and we, grow increasingly aware of the abuse that insidiously colors every aspect of her workday, an accumulation of degradations against which Jane decides to take a stand, only to discover the true depth of the system into which she has entered. Also starring Matthew Macfadyen (Succession), The Assistant is "a powerful movie about the ways power enforces silence" (Vanity Fair).

    Horrible, from start to finish. Non stop slow... so disappointing. Apple should offer a refund...

    Felt like I was watching and waiting for water to boil for one and a half hours, then realized I hadn’t turned on the stove top yet. I feel really sorry for the person who thought this was riveting.
  • Not worth even renting.

    By Steve Todoroff
    A rip off. Slow to develop and ends abruptly at 1:21. Maybe for $.99 rental fee I would t have felt so ripped off.
  • Utterly Stupid

    By Brandgarden
    There’s nothing in this movie that can bring me to say anything nice about it. I get that it’s supposed to make a point about sexism in hollywood, but it just highlights that any idiot can make a film. Nothing happens other than you see an assistant go about her very mundane day. She noticed something wrong, and does nothing effective about it. I guess that’s to highlight the fact that if you are powerfull no one can stop you? I bet it wins an award somewhere to highlight how stupid hollywood really is.
  • total ripoff

    Watched the preview, thought my wife would enjoy the movie. I kept waiting for something to happen but it never did. The actors were like robots, 90% of the movie takes place in a small office, everybody spoke just above a whisper. I was robbed.

    This is the perfect film to lul you to sleep, anytime of day. Another review I read said you could watch a blank screen and get the same movie. I feel like that is close to accurate as the film is about the daily grind for someone proficient at work. Oh yes, that’s the movie I want to see over and over (Sarcasm). They just can’t put out entertainment in Hollywierd anymore.
  • Worst movie ever

  • Losing faith in Rotten Tomatoes

    I don't think i've seen a worse movie in my life. I really want to try to bring the star ratings down...please help me. 2 stars from users is too generous. Waterworld, Battlefield Earth, and that Robert Redford movie in a boat for 2 hours were much better than this boring drivel. I've never written a movie review before, and feel compelled to write to express my frustration that this was ranked so highly by RT. I feel conned that the movie producers got my $4.99 towards their gross revenue line item giving them the impression that this movie was successful. The only people who would like this movie are the pseudo-intellectual a-holes that wear scarves in the summer, wear glasses with no prescription, drive a Prius, and brag that they use Lime. Uggggggg!!!!!!!!!!
