WOMEN TALKING: Last Day Thursday, February 23rd

Watch Trailer Director: Sarah Polley
Cast: Frances McDormand, Rooney Mara, Jessie Buckley, Claire Foy

Stay and fight. Or leave. In 2010, the women of an isolated religious community grapple with reconciling a brutal reality with their faith. The drama revolves around the eight women arguing, verbally circling each other, broadly philosophizing, or getting intimately personal while considering their larger cause of a whole village’s safety and fulfillment. The approach is unabashedly intellectual, with sparks of irreverent humor—one character chain-smoking; one of the elders telling an extended anecdote about two of her horses, Ruth and Cheryl; and one imploring another to “shut their pie holes”—leavening what might have been a dryly academic experience. Do nothing.
