About Women Talking

Nominated for the Best Picture and Adapted Screenplay Oscars Miriam Toews’ book about abuse and solidarity is brought to the screen by a stellar cast.

Inspired by true events, it transports us to an isolated Mennonite community, where a group of women are dealing with the aftermath of sexual assault by the colony’s men. In a sunlit barn, the women debate: will they stay and forgive their attackers? Fury, fear, resignation, obedience, hope – each woman, though dressed alike, expresses a different view.

Director: Sarah Polley
Rooney Mara, Claire Foy, Jessie Buckley, Frances McDormand, Ben Whishaw

It is compelling, gripping, powerful, as tense as a thriller. Think of it this way: it’s like Twelve Angry Men, but in this instance it’s Eight Angry Women (in a hayloft)
