HBO has released the trailer for their movie Confirmation. The movie, which we have written about this movie before on this site, stars Karry Washington as Anita Hill, the woman who accused Supreme Court Justice nominee Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment. We all know how this ended, Thomas got the post and very undistinguished career on the court while Anita got beat up by a bunch of white guys in the confirmation hearing and in a nasty book (that was later repudiated by the author).
Here’s the trailer:
The hearing did, however, succeed in bringing sexual harassment into the national spotlight. Anita has risen above her shameful treatment by the right wing and has become a distinguished law professor. Success is the best revenge!
Confirmation premieres on April 16th.
