Dir. Nicole Newnham, US, 2023, 118 mins.

The Hite Report remains one of the bestselling books of all time since its publication in 1976. Drawn from anonymous survey responses, the book challenged restrictive conceptions of sex and opened a dialogue in popular culture around women’s pleasure. Its charismatic author, Shere Hite, a feminist sex researcher and former model, became the public messenger of women’s secret confessions. But few remember Shere Hite today. Filmmaker Nicole Newnham (Crip Camp) transports viewers back to a time of great societal transformation around sexuality. The film is a rediscovery of a pioneer who has had an unmistakable influence on current conversations about gender, sexuality, and bodily autonomy, as well as a timely, cautionary tale of what too often happens to women who dare speak out.
