Women Talking (2022)

A group of women in an isolated Mennonite community grapple with reconciling their reality with their faith after a string of sexual violations.

Several men in the colony were perpetrating the sexual assaults using animal tranquilizers, but were caught and arrested. As the other men of the colony travel outside to bail them out, the women of the colony debate how to respond: stay and give the demanded apology, stay and fight, or leave.

This was a really gripping movie - I had no idea what I was getting into with it, and I feel like the discussions should get boring but it never did.

I very much want to see this. I read the book when it came out and it was absolutely compelling. Knowing it is based on true events is just that much more horrific, but the book itself I found oddly hopeful and uplifting. I can see from the trailer it’s beautifully filmed, par for the course for Sarah Polley. And what a cast!
