The Assistant

Australian Premiere | USA | Drama

Director Kitty Green’s real time drama depicts life in a toxic work place. Julia Garner is outstanding in the title role and as the ‘new kid on the block’.

The Assistant follows one day in the life of Jane (Julia Garner), a recent college graduate and aspiring film producer. Jane’s day is much like any other assistant’s — making coffee, ordering lunch, taking phone messages. But as Jane follows her daily routine, she grows increasingly aware of the abuse that insidiously colours every aspect of her work day.
