Kitty Green’s THE ASSISTANT Gets a New Clip

Bleecker Street has released a new clip for the upcoming thriller The Assistant, starring Julia Gardner as a young woman starting her first day as a junior assistant at a big entertainment company, but as the day progresses it becomes aware that there’s some insidious stuff happening in this office. The film is directed by Kitty Green and also stars Matthew Macfadyen, Makenzie Leigh, Kristine Froseth, Jon Orsini, and Noah Robbins.

The Assistant opens in theaters January 31st.

“The Assistant” follows one day in the life of Jane (Julia Garner), a recent college graduate and aspiring film producer, 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. 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.
