Confirmed: Kerry Washington makes an excellent Anita Hill.

The film takes place in 1991, when Hill — an attorney and academic — accused Thomas of sexual harassment after working as his assistant for two years.

The movie, which also stars Greg Kinnear, Jennifer Hudson, Alison Wright, Eric Stonestreet and Jeffrey Wright is executive produced by Washington, Michael London and Janice Williams. Erin Brockovich screenwriter Susannah Grant wrote the script.

On Instagram, Washington touted the photo with a note thanking HBO for the chance to play Hill in the film.
