The HBO biopic will tell both Hill and Clarence Thomas’ side of the story.
The first trailer for HBO’s highly anticipated biopic Confirmation is here!
On Friday, Scandal star Kerry Washington tweeted a first look at the upcoming drama where she stars as Anita Hill, the attorney who accused Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment during his 1991 Supreme Court campaign.
“I was immersed in how complicated and how complex the issues were from a very young age,” Washington said of a case that would forever change how we viewed sexual harassment in the workplace. “I wish that I had the level of elegance and grace that I think Anita did. I wish I had that in the beginning,” she added.
Treme‘s Wendell Pierce portrays Thomas and the biopic also features Jeffrey Wright, Greg Kinnear, and Jennifer Hudson.
Confirmation premieres on HBO April 16.
