“I'm not beautiful. I'm not ugly. I'm angry.”
Misbehaviour is about women living in and outside of the law to promote their feminist agenda and beauty pageant contestants that are felt up and patronized.
The intro played out almost exactly the same as Catherine Corsini's Summertime, but then the film evolved in its own way, despite kind of feeling light.
Keira Knightley plays a reluctant feminist, Jessie Buckley plays an anarchist practically, Gugu Mbatha-Raw plays Miss Grenada who is competing to be Miss World, and Greg Kinnear plays the out of touch and sexist Bob Hope.
Unfortunately, today the struggle continues: do women focus on their looks or their smarts? Are they pushed down by the patriarchy they so badly want to destroy? Will they stand up to the system?
”If you don't fight, you deserve the world you f***ing get.”
