The Most Hated Woman in America Trailer

"Don't you know who I am?!" Netflix has debuted a trailer for a film titled The Most Hated Woman in America, which is also premiering at the SXSW Film Festival this month (like many other Netflix films). This tells the true story of the much debated rise and demise of a woman, named Madalyn Murray O'Hair, who was the founder of the "American Atheists" organization. She quickly became the "most hated woman in America", hence the title. Melissa Leo plays O'Hair, and the cast includes Juno Temple, Adam Scott, Josh Lucas, Vincent Kartheiser, Peter Fonda, Michael Chernus & Rory Cochrane. As interesting as this story seems, I'll watch it purely for Melissa Leo. She looks totally unrecognizable, always cool to see.

Here's the first trailer for Tommy O'Haver's The Most Hated Woman in America, from YouTube:

The Most Hated Woman in America Movie

A true-crime biopic about the disappearance of Madalyn Murray O'Hair, founder of the "American Atheists" and pioneering firebrand in the political culture war, The Most Hated Woman in America captures the rise and fall of a complex character who was a controversial villain to some and an unlikely hero to others. The Most Hated Woman in America is directed by filmmaker Tommy O'Haver, of the films Get Over It, Ella Enchanted, and An American Crime previously. The screenplay is written by Tommy O'Haver and Irene Turner. The film is premiering at the SXSW Film Festival this month. Netflix will then release The Most Hated Woman in America streaming starting March 24th later this month. Interested?

  • Seems a weird one, I'll watch it. It's funny the Jesus myth is still taken seriously in America. Looks like this lady turned atheism into a money making scam too.

      Yeah...the rest of the world are Atheists (yes I'm making fun of your ignorant statement)
  • shiboleth
    I like the idea, though... Although, if Hollywood can take money for his shabby products, why religious fanatics and their opponents shouldn't have the same right? Of course, I don't agree with none of this perspectives, but it's logical thing to think ...
    • Bo
      I like the idea too, shiboleth. It's just hideous to me that we make children say the lord's prayer in classrooms. Talk about programming! I like the looks of this film and hope they've presented the subject matter in an interesting and intelligent manner. What are the chances of that? Still, I have my hopes. At least it doesn't have Gerald Butler in take it you've not seen my direct post to you on the Butler movie thread of today?....

        Hey Bo, in our schools, we don't do it except when children have classes about religion. And I agree with you, it's hideous, but it is still present in many societies. Not only in American ones. Sick practice, I definitely agree with that. And yes, let's see if this turns out ok. It just might. And it's a part of bigger process of degeneration in many societies these days. But I don't think it will last since a lot of people is waking from just letting things go their way without consulting those that are against it... As for Gerard Butler tease, no problem there. It's his damn fault for becoming part of fun in our witty exchanges ...
        • Bo
 am...literally laughing out loud at Butler being at fault here, but gotta thank him for that as I've enjoyed myself at his Human beings and their religions and all of them think theirs is the only one and the truth when none of them my humble opinion, of course. Later gator.

      No one said they don't have the right. Are you literally brain dead?
    Didn't pique my interest in the least.

    She doesn't look anything like Hillary
