It’s not often a movie comes along that ticks all our boxes! MISBEHAVIOUR, in Cinemas on November 26, does exactly that. Beautifully acted and directed it deals in a positive way with issues of diversity, feminism, racism, sexism and beauty pageants, not to mention a social Revolution!
Add glamour and you’ve got the perfect mix for Cocktail Revolutionaries.
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. With an all-star cast including Keira Knightley, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Rhys Ifans and Greg Kinnear.
