It’s 1970, and the Miss World competition takes place in London, hosted by US comedy legend Bob Hope (Greg Kinnear).
The competition is the most-watched TV show on the planet with over 100 million viewers. Claiming that beauty competitions demeaned women, the newly formed Women’s Liberation Movement achieves overnight fame by invading the stage and disrupting the live broadcast of the competition.
When the show resumes, the result causes uproar: The winner is not the Swedish favourite but Miss Grenada Jennifer Hosten (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), the first black woman to be crowned Miss World. In a matter of hours, a global audience witnesses the Western ideal of beauty turned on its head.
Co-stars Keira Knightley, Lesley Manville, Rhys Ifans and Jessie Buckley
