An interesting perspective from the harassed women (Megan Kelly & Gretchen Carlson and the composite character portrayed by Margot Robbie). The audience is made to feel the shame and disdain from the actions of some at Fox.  Well portrayed and conveyed by the actors.  I did struggle with the portrayal of Roger Ailes by John Lithgow.  The Loudest Voice may have done Roger more justice in his protrayal.
