THE ASSISTANT is a US drama in which a young assistant to a powerful film mogul begins to suspect that her boss is guilty of sexually predatory behaviour.

Sexual violence

Several scenes strongly imply that a powerful boss is using his position to pressure young and professionally inexperienced women into sex. In one scene a woman witnesses shapes moving behind the blurred glass of a window that suggest a woman performing fellatio.

There is infrequent use of strong language (‘f**k’); milder terms include ‘shit’ and ‘bullshit’.
