From The Booth
Miriam Toews' bestselling novel has been adapted with the greatest care by screenwriter/director Sarah Polley and co-producer Frances McDormand and the film has received Oscar nominations for Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Picture!
A small group of women, part of an isolated patriarchal religious community, gather to talk. They have been subjected to abuse by male members of their community and they gather to discuss and decide their own futures. With the help of an amazing ensemble cast that includes, Rooney Mara, Claire Foy, Jessie Buckley, Judith Ivey, Sheila McCarthy and Ben Whishaw, we witness a story of strength, resilience and empowerment.
"The root of Protestantism, after all, is protest — against arbitrary and unaccountable authority in the name of a higher truth. Women Talking reawakens that idea and applies it, with precision and passion, to our own time and circumstances. The women don’t want pity or revenge. They want a better world. Why not listen?" - AO Scott, NY Times
"Hard as it might be to imagine, Women Talking is an upbeat and propulsive film cut with a sharp wit and a ready sense of humor, even if its characters are often laughing as hard as they wish they could cry." - David Ehrlich, IndieWire
