Misbehaviour – ★★★✩✩ | Film Review

The Story of the Miss World Competition in 1970 when women’s liberation was on the verge of breaking through and making an impact.

Keira Knightley is a would-be colleague student, struggling to fit into a male orientated world, who gets involved with a women’s liberation group who are looking to protest against the Miss World Competition and everything it stands for. 

Jessie Buckley’s Jo Robinson heads up the group with plenty of anarchy in mind.

Against this is the fact that the first ever black South African representative is taking part in the competition, and along with Miss Geneva (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) are looking to break the mould and break through the diversity barrier themselves. 

Then you have Greg Kinnear’s Bob Hope, special guest of the show and having previously had history with a previosy miss world winner, his wife isn’t all that happy about him hosting.

It’s an important story, yet its telling it just all a big fluffy and pretty much instantly forgettable. It will remind me of the facts of what happened in real life, a thing I had no idea about, but other than that, it’s not setting any worlds alight as a film.
