Did You Know?
- Matthew Macfadyen and Dagmara Dominczyk both have starring roles in Succession.
- According to a White House invitation seen on screen, the month of December begins on a Wednesday. However, the laser-printed calendar page taped on the cabinet door behind Jane's desk only has 30 days. Since it's cold and snowing outside in New York City, the day being shown in the film has to be a day in November. However, the laser-printed calendar shows the 1st on a Wednesday. It is impossible for November and December to begin on the same day. Alternatively, if the day in the film is in December, they forgot to print a 31-day calendar.

while the performances were good, the story was terrible
Took forever for the movie to have a tiny bit of suspense just to lead back to being slow and boring...
The Assistant is inspired by potentially scandalous material but subverts expectations, asking the audience to consider the broader societal implications of the crime.
While the filmmaker rightly understands that shock value isn’t the only way to tell a visceral story, its central performance by Julia Garner is what makes the film most interesting to watch.
The central character never develops in an interesting way. Well before the wrap-up of this brief tale, her cultivated recessiveness becomes tiresome and, in these particular circumstances, a bit dull.
