What Is the ‘Woman of the Hour’ About?

Here’s the official synopsis for ‘Woman of the Hour’:

In the 1970s, Rodney Alcala embarked on a murderous rampage, using the guise of a photographer searching for models to lure his victims. Despite being a registered sex offender and recently released from prison, he shockingly appeared on ‘The Dating Game,’ a show featuring three concealed bachelors competing for a date with a woman who asked them entertaining questions before selecting a winner for an all-expenses-paid trip.

Who Is Making ‘Woman of the Hour’?

In her directorial debut, Anna Kendrick steers ‘Woman of the Hour’ away from the typically dark and gruesome true-crime narratives. Instead, the film delves into the complexities women often face when dealing with men, serving as a poignant commentary.

It metaphorically portrays the delicate dance women perform around male aggression, emphasizing the need for caution. The screenplay, penned by Ian MacAllister McDonald, draws from his production experience in ‘Piece of Me’ and his directorial work in ‘Some Freaks.’

The story revolves around a real-life incident when a bachelorette, in the 1970s dating show, chose charming bachelor number one, Rodney Alcala, who shockingly turned out to be a murderer.

‘Woman of the Hour’ is brought to life by producers Roy Lee, Miri Yoon, J.D. Lifshitz, and Raphael Margules, operating under AGC Studios, Vertigo Entertainment, and BoulderLight Pictures.
