description

An examination of Louis C.K.’s sexual misconduct during his long comedy career, alongside the perspectives of three women who spoke out about it.

SORRY/NOT SORRY charts how an open secret evolved into on-the-record allegations. After admitting “these stories are true,” C.K. faced initial repercussions, followed by a swift comeback. Featuring interviews with the reporters who broke the original story, Melena Ryzik, Cara Buckley, and Jodi Kantor, along with comedians, entertainers, and cultural commentators including Michael Ian Black, Michael Schur, Aida Rodriguez, Andy Kindler, Noam Dworman, and Wesley Morris; the film explores the cultural fixation with Louis C.K. and his path to redemption, while revealing the backlash women faced both personally and professionally for calling attention to his bad behaviour.

press for Sorry/Not Sorry

"SORRY/NOT SORRY remains a fascinating documentary as it breaks down, scene by scene, how easily misbehavior can be twisted into a punch line."
- The Atlantic
"It is a nicely-packaged, technically-proficient production that stands out due to its timing, certainly, but also for the power and personality of the female comedians interviewed by the directors."
- Screen International
