Synopsis:
In 1970, the Miss World competition took place in London, hosted by US comedy legend, Bob Hope (Greg Kinnear). 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.

Entertaining and thought provoking - Misbehaviour review by JR

Spoiler Alert
15/09/2020

It is not just a 'feel good ' jolly British film, it is more serious, but wears its seriousness lightly. Women's equality, sexual objectification of women, racial injustice - these are the concerns of this film. Keira Knightly is as good as I've ever seen her, Rhys Ifans has a ball playing Eric Morley. It is pretty shocking that the cringe worthy cattle market that was the Miss World contest was considered good wholesome family TV viewing. The film shows how far we have come since the middle of the 20th century but also signals that we have much further to go. I enjoyed seeing the real people portrayed in the film before the end credits.
