The “Me Too” movement resulted in numerous mea culpas, not all of which were heartfelt. Louis C.K.’s response to accusations is an interesting case in point. When the story of his sexual harassment broke, it initially seemed that the extremely successful comedian, who admitted that the stories were true, might actually be interested in learning and growing as a person. Nine months later, he returned to the stage with jokes that instead revealed a man doubling down on bad behavior. This powerful documentary gives voice to the nuanced experiences of three women who tried to expose C.K.’s bad behavior and the backlash they faced. It charts how an open secret evolved into a national news item and features compelling and humorous interviews and comedy clips. With stark lucidity, the film also highlights that it is almost exclusively women who speak out about sexual misconduct, while their male peers often say little or nothing at all—a “sorry” state of affairs, indeed.
