About Women Talking
Do nothing. Stay and fight. Or leave. In 2010, the women of an isolated Mennonite community grapple with reconciling a brutal reality with their faith. Acclaimed director Sarah Polley's first return to feature filmmaking since 2012 is a searing adaption of Miriam Toews' 2018 award-winning novel. With unforgettable ensemble performances led by some of the most engaging talent working today, including Rooney Mara (Carol, A Ghost Story), Claire Foy (The Crown), Jessie Buckley (The Lost Daughter, Men), and Frances McDormand (Fargo, Nomadland, The Tragedy of Macbeth), and Polley's assured and nuanced directing, Women Talking is a cultural and cinematic experience you won't soon forget. An IndieWire Critic's Pick. [104 mins; drama; English]
