Misbehaviour has skipped a release in US cinemas and is now available to watch online!
Based on real events, the movie dramatises the incredible true story of activists who invaded the Miss World pageant in London in 1970.
Starring Keira Knightley, Misbehaviour was released in the UK earlier this year, but its US release was cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Fortunately, it’s now been made available digitally instead and you can watch it on Amazon Prime Video now!
Watch the trailer:
The brilliant cast includes Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Belle), Jessie Buckley (War & Peace), Greg Kinnear (Little Miss Sunshine), Lesley Manville (World on Fire), Keeley Hawes (The Durrells), Rhys Ifans (Notting Hill), and Phyllis Logan (Downton Abbey).
The official synopsis reads: “In 1970, the Miss World competition took place in London, hosted by US comedy legend, Bob Hope. At the time, Miss World was the most-watched TV show on the planet with over 100 million viewers.
“Claiming that beauty competitions demeaned women, the newly formed Women’s Liberation Movement achieved overnight fame by invading the stage and disrupting the live broadcast of the competition.
“Not only that, when the show resumed, the result caused uproar: the winner was not the Swedish favourite but Miss Grenada, the first black woman to be crowned Miss World. In a matter of hours, a global audience had witnessed the patriarchy driven from the stage and the Western ideal of beauty turned on its head.”
Misbehaviour is available to watch on Amazon Prime Video.
