The highly-anticipated film, Untouchable: The Rise and Fall of Harvey Weinstein, is exclusively on new movie streaming service iwonder, giving local viewers the inside access into one of the most shocking and widely publicised scandals ever to emerge from Hollywood.

With as many as 80 women – including Angelina Jolie, Gywneth Paltrow, Kate Beckinsale, Cara Delevigne, Salma Hayek, Ashley Judd and Rose McGowan – claiming to have been sexually harassed or assaulted by Hollywood movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, Untouchable dives deep into the scandal credited for the rise of the global #MeToo movement.

Academy Award-winning movie producer, Harvey Weinstein, held a powerful position in Hollywood stretching back decades. As the co-founder of Miramax Films (which he later sold to Disney) and The Weinstein Company, Weinstein produced countless blockbuster hits like Pulp Fiction, Good Will Hunting, Shakespeare in Love, Sex, Lies, Videotapes, Gangs Of New York, Scream and more. However, behind the mask of legitimacy, it is supposed, lurked a sexual predator who preyed on aspiring actresses and co-workers.

Untouchable – from Academy Award-winning producer Simon Chinn (Man on Wire, Searching for Sugarman) and BAFTA-nominated director Ursula MacFarlane (One Deadly Weekend In America) – is a powerful and moving account of the abuses of power and privilege told in the often heart-breaking words of many of Weinstein’s accusers and purported victims.

These raw and emotionally-charged testimonies shine a chilling light on the methods he apparently used to lure unsuspecting women into situations from which they were unable to escape. For the first time, in their own words, we hear from some of the victims about what it was like to be a sexual target in the private and imposing presence of Weinstein.
