Reigniting Outrage: Brett Kavanaugh Documentary Premieres at Sundance with Damning Allegations

A new documentary about Brett Kavanaugh’s contentious Supreme Court confirmation hearings premiered at the Sundance Film Festival on Sunday, sparking renewed outrage and calls for a new investigation into the sexual assault allegations against the justice.

The film, titled Justice, is directed by Doug Liman and provides a behind-the-scenes look at the hearings that rocked the nation in 2018. In the documentary, Liman interviews witnesses and journalists who were present for the hearings, as well as some of Kavanaugh’s accusers.

The documentary has been met with a mix of reactions from critics, who have praised Liman for turning the spotlight back on the hearings but have also noted that the film offers few new revelations.

The Daily Beast noted that the documentary includes new damning allegations against Kavanaugh, while IndieWire argued that the documentary should compel the FBI to reopen its investigation into the sexual assault allegations.

Regardless of the critical reception, it is clear that the documentary has reignited the same old outrage. As Liman himself said, he hopes the film will “trigger outrage” and lead to further action.
