The Weinstein Company is finally turning on its own in a big way, accusing Harvey Weinstein of acting alone during the multiple alleged incidents of sexual misconduct. I don't think it would have come out five years ago, I think Harvey was still powerful enough and I don't think the environment was right. Enraged because of the good reception of the movie but he thought that it wouldn't work, I was assaulted.

Lawyer Jill Greenfield, who is representing half a dozen women in a UK Civil Court Action against the producer, said in the documentary: "You've got an terrible lot of women who have been afraid for many years and are still very afraid, but these women now have an bad lot of other women and people around them who are really not afraid and are prepared to go all the way on this". We were talking about at the bottom of the cinema after the public is gone, but the people of Miramax were still present, and he has me pressed against a distributor of coca and threatened me with all sorts of things. "It was very scary". Ms. Perkins chose not to report any of her claims to the police at the time and instead demanded money...there was never any prohibition of reporting any of her class to the police nor was there in any other settlement agreement relating to Mr. Weinstein.

"Mr. Parfitt and Mr. Weinstein had creative differences and any conflict between them was exclusively over their different visions for the film", the rep said. Although they have had sharp disputes in which Mr. Weinstein has done a lot of stupid remarks that he would like to be able to withdraw, there has been no physical altercation.

Michelle Williams, who portrayed Monroe in the movie, won a Golden Globe for her performance.

For example, a former Miramax employee describes how, as a young woman, and during what was her first meeting with Weinstein, the producer requested a massage. It reads: "The use of Non-Disclosure agreements with employees in both entertainment and media companies is standard in the industry". A spokesperson for Weinstein has denied claims that an assault took places, but acknowledges there were disagreements between the two men.

Lawyer Jill Greenfield, who is representing a number of women bringing a civil suit against Weinstein in United Kingdom court, and also appears in the documentary, says: "You've got an terrible lot of women who have been afraid for many years and are still very afraid, but these women now have an bad lot of other women and people around them who are really not afraid and are prepared to go all the way on this. He's just a man".
