Good luck!

Misbehaviour‘s theatrical release was cut short due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, and was forced to go to VOD early across the pond. The feel-good film was met with mostly positive reviews and particular praise for Knightley and Mbatha-Raw’s performances as the rival feminist and pageant contestant, respectively. But the British comedy-drama finally hits VOD platforms in the U.S. this week, when it will be available to watch on Apple, Amazon, Sony (Playstation), Microsoft (Xbox), GooglePlay, FandangoNOW, Vudu, and InDemand EST.

Directed by Philippa LowthorpeMisbehaviour features a star-studded cast that includes Keira Knightley, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Jessie Buckley, Keeley Hawes, Phyllis Logan, Lesley Manville, Rhys Ifans, and Greg Kinnear. It’s based on the astonishing real-life story of the feminist Women’s Liberation Movement who scheme to disrupt the 1970 Miss World competition, causing a nationwide uproar and earning them overnight fame.

Here is the Misbehaviour synopsis below:

In 1970, the Miss World competition took place in London, hosted by US comedy legend Bob Hope. At the time, Miss World was the most-watched TV show on the planet with over 100 million viewers.  Claiming that beauty competitions demeaned women, the newly formed Women’s Liberation Movement achieved overnight fame by invading the stage and disrupting the live broadcast of the competition. Not only that, when the show resumed, the result caused uproar: the winner was not the Swedish favourite but Miss Grenada, the first black woman to be crowned Miss World. In a matter of hours, a global audience had witnessed the patriarchy driven from the stage and the Western ideal of beauty turned on its head.

Misbehaviour hits VOD September 25, 2020.
