London: Actor Toni Collette believes that movements such as Time's Up and #MeToo have resulted in a positive change in the film industry.

"I'm now a middle-aged woman and it feels like many more roles are opening up for women. That's my personal experience," Collette said.

"It's not just this industry, it's society at large. There's been this ridiculous sense of inequality. Anyway, it's about time. It's such a necessary change and it really is occurring. You can feel it," she added.

Hereditary, directed by Ari Aster and also starring Alex Wolff, Milly Shapiro, Ann Dowd, and Gabriel Byrne, is about a family that begins to be haunted following the death of their reclusive grandmother. The film was recently released in the United States to great reviews.
