Movie Info

Against a backdrop of sex, politics and race, Academy Award (R) winning filmmaker Freida Mock's ANITA reveals the intimate story of Anita Hill, a woman who dared to speak the truth. This powerful documentary traces Ms. Hill's life from her early years through her legacy today, offering fascinating insight into her experiences testifying before the Senate just over 22 years ago in the weekend of shocking television that made her a household name and smashed the door open on the issues of sexual harassment and gender equality.(C) Samuel Goldwyn Pictures

  • It seems rather optimistically insistent on making a case that America has come a long way in 20 years, when the truth is 20 years is a mere historical heartbeat.

  • Hill, now a professor at Brandeis, looks back on the events of 1991 with courage and grace.

  • As Hill says - and personifies - in the film, "honesty, dignity and courage is what will be remembered."

    Apr 3, 2014 | Rating: 3.5/4
  • Frieda Mock's documentary "Anita" is a dutiful history lesson even as it brings us closer to the very private person at the center of that long-ago, still relevant storm.

  • It's a reminder of what we were and, thanks to Hill, how far we've come.

  • Focusing on her as a personality at the expense of the incident's greater social, racial, and political context reduces this to a liberal exercise in self-congratulation.

Audience Reviews for Anita

Remembering the story of Anita Hill brings no less comfort. A woman puts her professional life and personal dignity on the line to do the right thing. It is a joy to see her cheerful face years later. She is a success with a happy life and it is all that we would hope for her.
