Movie Preview: Keira, Gugu vs. Kinnear and Ifans — “Misbehavior”

This period piece is about a feminist protest of the 1970 Miss World pageant in London.

Keira Knightley is a young mother properly outraged by this pageant and its patriarchal practices, Gugu Mbatha-Raw is a contestant. Jessie Buckley and Suki Waterhouse and Keely Hawes also star in“Misbehavior,” a March (UK) release, a real world event and protest with lots of points of view.

Rhys Ifans is the piggish organizer/promoter, Eric Morley.

Philippa Lowthorpe (“Three Girls”) directed it.

Greg Kinnear peels back the skin to show Bob Hope at his sexist, womanizing ugliest. That’s reason enough to check this British “true story” production out.
