'The Assistant' Trailer Features Julia Garner Working for a Harvey Weinstein - Watch

Julia Garner stuns in the new trailer for The Assistant, the upcoming Harvey Weinstein drama.

In it, the 25-year-old Ozark actress plays Jane, a recent college graduate and aspiring film producer.

It follows “one day in the life of Jane, who has recently landed her dream job as a junior assistant to a powerful entertainment mogul. Her day is much like any other assistant’s – making coffee, changing the paper in the copy machine, ordering lunch, arranging travel, taking phone messages, onboarding a new hire.”

The synopsis continues, “But as Jane follows her daily routine, she, and we, grow increasingly aware of the abuse that insidiously colors every aspect of her work day, 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.”

While Harvey Weinstein never appears and is never mentioned by name, his presence is felt throughout the scenes.

Written and directed by Kitty Green, the film also stars Matthew Macfadyen, Makenzie Leigh, Kristine Froseth, Jon Orsini, and Noah Robbins.

The Assistant hits theaters on January 31. Watch Julia Garner in the trailer now!
