It won for its star, Laura Dern, not only a Golden Globe Award, but renewed notice as an actress of extraordinary range and depth. Fox: I think child sexual abuse is one of the taboos we have trouble even speaking about. And so, the first thing this film does is to open up the conversation. The second thing we tried to describe is that child sexual abuse is so much graver and more complex. The film really can open up a discussion of how complex it is when a child gets ensnared with a predator and the nuances of feeling that a child can go through. AJT: As the film describes it, you lived with this abuse for years as an adult without fully facing it until you were in middle age.

Laura Dern identifies with her character’s sexual harassment experience in HBO’s The Tale
The movie is a MeToo story that dramatizes the vital importance of that movement and the shift in mores that it both embodies and advances. Jennifer, an experienced documentary filmmaker and professor, returns from a film shoot in India to frantic phone messages from her mother, Nettie Ellen Burstyn , who, while going through papers at home, found a story that Jennifer wrote at the age of thirteen and presented, in school, as a work of fiction. That experience was a sexual relationship with a forty-ish man named Bill Allens Jason Ritter , whose lover and close companion was her riding instructor, Jane Gramercy Elizabeth Debicki. Both characters' names are fictitious.

When filmmaker Jennifer Fox was 13, she wrote a story for English class about a young girl who is coerced into a sexual relationship with her year-old running coach. With the support of her mother Ellen Burstyn and boyfriend Common , she reconnects with people from her past in an effort to remember what happened after years of suppression. She says she never recognized it for what it was until the MeToo movement started last fall, as women and men came forward with allegations of sexual misconduct and abuses of power.
