Description Follows one day in the life of Jane (Julia Garner), a recent college graduate and aspiring film producer, who has recently landed her dream job as a junior assistant to a powerful entertainment mogul. Her day is much like any other assistant's - making coffee, changing the paper in the copy machine, ordering lunch, arranging travel, taking phone messages, onboarding a new hire. But as Jane follows her daily routine, she, and we, grow increasingly aware of the abuse that insidiously colors every aspect of her work day, an accumulation of degradations against which Jane decides to take a stand, only to discover the true depth of the system into which she has entered.

I was fortunate enough to catch the screening of "The Assistant" at the 2012 Toronto Film Festival. It was a long wait, but the wait paid off. I thoroughly enjoyed this film, and I am glad that it has finally reached the big screen. I won't go into the plot, since most will already know it. The story follows Sarah, a woman on the run from the law. She is a divorcee who has been given custody of her daughter by her ex-husband, and her daughter is constantly running away from her. In order to get custody, she must take her daughter to the DMV, where she must prove that her daughter is an adult. There is no law in place to hold parents who have custody over their children, so the law requires a judge to determine custody, with the help of a psychologist. At the DMV, Sarah's daughter is being bullied by some of the other children in the facility, and a guard at the facility is afraid that the kids will hurt her daughter. Sarah comes to the defense of her daughter, and is able to convince a judge that the children are not actually adults, and that they are merely children. Sarah's daughter becomes a high school student, and is put in the care of a doctor, Dr. Nathan, who is trying to help her cope with the fact that her daughter has been locked up in the institution. However, he has to contend with other problems: Sarah's ex-husband is out to get custody of the girl, and a local police officer is trying to solve the case. I think that the ending of the film was extremely powerful. Sarah's daughter goes on to become a young adult and lives with her mother, and Sarah's ex-husband is dead. The ending of the film is one of the most powerful endings I have ever seen in a film. I will not give anything away, but it is worth the price of admission. It is a very powerful ending to a story that should have ended badly. There are some very disturbing scenes in the film, but they are not gratuitous. I would recommend this film to anyone who likes a good drama or drama-thriller. I gave it a 9 out of 10.
