Number One


An ambitious woman treads a dangerous path as she attempts to crash the corporate boys’ club in this timely feminist drama. Emmanuelle (César nominee Emmanuelle Devos) is a successful energy company executive tapped by a feminist lobbying group to step into the soon-to-be-open CEO position at France’s national water company—a move that would make her the first woman to lead a major French corporation. But first, Emmanuelle must navigate a treacherous minefield of sexism, blackmail, and a smear campaign designed to squash her. Director Tonie Marshall (Venus Beauty Institute) blends twisty boardroom intrigue with an impassioned message about the need for female solidarity in the workplace.
