Suki Waterhouse to play Miss USA in Misbehaviour

Actress Suki Waterhouse has been cast to portray Miss USA Sandra Wolsfeld in a film about the 1970 Miss World contest.
Misbehaviour will centre on the pageant, which took place amid protests from the newly-founded Women’s Liberation Movement.
Keira Knightley, Gugu Mbatha Raw, Keeley Hawes, Rhys Ifans, Phyllis Logan, and Jessie Buckley will also star, while Greg Kinnear and Lesley Manville have signed on to play host Bob and Dolores Hope.
“Claiming that beauty competitions demeaned women, the newly-formed Women’s Liberation Movement achieved fame by invading the stage and disrupting the live broadcast of the 1970 competition, then at the height of its popularity,” a statement about the film reads. “When the show resumed, the result caused uproar: the winner was not the Swedish favourite but Miss Grenada – the first black woman to be crowned Miss World.”
Philippa Lowthorpe is directing the film, which is currently in production.
