Keira Knightley and Jessie Buckley star as two protestors boycotting the pageants, decrying the sheer concept of making women be attributed worth based on their looks alone. At the same time, Gugu Mbatha-Raw plays Hosten, in the middle of a pageant that historically never paid attention to people who look like her.
Comedies rewriting history and reviving a crucial conversation about women's rights and equality have multiplied in the past few years – but that's no bad thing.
Buckley starred in Wild Rose as a free spirit with a song in her heart, while Knightley played a whistleblower in Official Secrets. There are always more stories to be platformed – and if it can be done with a spring in its step, even better.
Mark your calendars for a history lesson with a particularly entertaining edge, when Misbehaviour comes to cinemas on 13 March 2020.
