“MRS. AMERICA tears the tiara from the American image that women are born with equal rights and equal agendas. In this ambitiously insightful study of the gender warfare surrounding the creation of the Equal Rights Amendment, Dahvi Waller’s liberating narrative presents the past as a look to the battles still raging today. Cate Blanchett plays against radiant type as she manifests the rigid body and beliefs of conservative activist Phyllis Schlafly who defies a sisterhood bound most powerfully by the performances of Uzo Aduba, Rose Byrne, Tracey Ullman and Margo Martindale.” -The American Film Institute
