Must watch featurette for Sarah Polley’s Women Talking starring Rooney Mara, Claire Foy, Jessie Buckley, Judith Ivey, and Frances McDormand

Based on the Book by Miriam Toews, Women Talking is written and directed by the excellent Sarah Polley, with a very strong cast that includes Rooney Mara, Claire Foy, Jessie Buckley, Judith Ivey, and Frances McDormand, plus Ben Whishaw.

Taking us back to 2010, we follow the story of a group of women from an isolated religious community grapple with reconciling their reality with their faith after a series of sexual assaults. Toews original novel is loosely based on the real-life story of the women of the ultraconservative Mennonite community in Bolivia, and the men who committed the heinous crimes. The film feels not only timely, but sure to open up further discussion, watch an insightful featurette below – with filmmaker Sarah Polley and the trailer:

Women Talking comes to cinemas from 10th February, 2022
