THE MOST HATED WOMAN IN AMERICA
March 24, 2017  | By David Bianculli

Netflix, 3:00 a.m. ET

 

The title is taken from the headline of a 1964 Life magazine profile of its, and this film’s subject: famous atheist Madalyn Murray O’Hair, whose achievements included pressing for a successfully argued U.S. Supreme Court case banning mandatory Bible readings in public schools. Writer-director Tommy O’Haver focuses this film biography on the last bit of O’Hair’s life, which certainly has its dramatic elements – but, even with flashbacks, may leave behind some other very interesting bits along the way. Melissa Leo stars in the title role, and co-stars include Juno Temple and Adam Scott.
