Kerry Washington fixes political scandals Thursday nights on ABC. But on Saturday, she'll be in the middle of the controversy in HBO's latest film, "Confirmation."
Washington plays Anita Hill, the law professor who accused then-Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment in 1991.
Washington told NPR: "Back then that was a vague legal term that people were not using. There was little public understanding about even what sexual harassment was."
