Saturday Cinema: The Boss

Saturday, July 30

This month we’re showing The Boss starring Melissa McCarthy.

Michelle Darnell is a ruthless businesswoman whose rise to the top has left her with many enemies. Her unscrupulous actions catch up with her when she is arrested for insider trading, but she decides to try to turn this setback into something positive for her career. After all, her prison term is short, and Americans love a good redemption story. If she can convince everyone she has changed her tune, her business may bounce back stronger than ever. However, her old enemies haven’t forgotten their grudges, and they are going to make it very difficult for her to bounce back.
