Women Talking

New York Times Critics' Pick
104 mins.
Directed by Sarah Polley

Last day Thurdsay, Feb. 23.

In 2010, the women of an isolated religious community grapple with reconciling their reality with their faith.

Director Sarah Polley's adaptation of the novel by Miriam Toews stars Claire Foy, Frances McDormand, Jessie Buckley, Rooney Mara, Ben Whishaw, and more.

Nominated for 2 Academy Awards:

  • Best Picture
  • Best Adapted Screenplay (Sarah Polley)

“A stellar ensemble cast... It seems contrary to Polley’s democratic method to single out performances for praise, but I found myself coming back to the wit that percolates underneath Foy’s ferocity, the deep sorrow behind McCarthy’s patience, Ivey’s beatitude, Hallett’s rambunctious high humor, Frances McDormand’s heartbreaking silence and August Winter’s unaffected dignity as a gender-nonconforming character named Melvin.” A.O.
