WOMEN TALKING

In a hayloft on a prairie far away some Mennonite women gather to conspire. They have choices—just like us: they could stay silent and do nothing; they could stand up and fight; or they can leave. The setting of this story is a clear metaphor of patriarchal oppression, for they need to outlast the abuse they endure from men. We never see these men, but we read their power in the women’s eyes. This adaptation of Miriam Toews’ novel has a gravity that may remind us of Carl Dreyer (Danish director of the incomparable silent film masterpiece THE PASSION OF JOAN OR ARC), but the epic description of a female imagination in a rural landscape is pure Sarah Polley–from heralded Canadian child actress in Atom Egoyan’s THE SWEET HEREAFTER to renowned director of TAKE THIS WALTZ (2011), STORIES WE TELL (2012), and the remarkable Netflix limited series ALIAS GRACE (2017).

Lit up by radiant, fierce performances (Rooney Mara, Claire Foy, Jessie Buckley, Sheila McCarthy and Judith Ivey, plus Ben Whishaw and Frances McDormand), this is another Polley masterpiece. WOMEN TALKING is unequivocally the film for now.
