Women Talking

A group of women in an isolated Mennonite religious colony in Bolivia as they struggle to reconcile their faith with a string of sexual assaults committed by the colony’s men.

Reviews:

Though the source material is loosely based on a real-life episode in a Bolivian Mennonite village, its cinematic equivalent arrives to us as a big, ripe allegory for the ordeals faced by those traversing the hostile terrain of entertainment. Inside Hook

As time ticks towards a deadline, audiences will be rivetted and hoping that these emotionally scarred women find the strength and resolve needed to propel them forward. DwightBrownInk.com

Lovers of the novels of Marilynne Robinson or Elizabeth Strout will swoon over the film’s pacing. Its aesthetic is just as quietly bold. London Evening Standard

…the film is beautifully performed and gripping in a chewy, nuanced, contemplative way… Daily Telegraph (UK)

A wrenching drama about freedom, faith, abuse, autonomy, responsibility and survival. The Daily Beast
