Tuesday, January 29, 2019

LOS ANGELES TIMES -- Following the premiere screening, Bening said she has known Feinstein for many years — “I’m from California, I’m a Democrat, we both went to San Francisco State” — but did not talk to her specifically about the project.

“I almost thought it was stronger for the movie if it’s not about that,” Bening said. “It’s not about the agenda, the movie’s just trying the best it can to tell the truth about what happened. And in this case she was at the center of something that happened that was the right thing.”
