Women Talking

The title “Women Talking” is a great description for this movie. A group of women living in a religious farming community gather to figure out what they are going to do about the consistent abuse by the men. They can do nothing, fight back or leave. The entire film consists of their discussion on these topics, There is not much action, just dialogue. The acting is very good. I was especially impressed by Judith Ivey as one of the oldest women. There is only one male role, played by Ben Winslow. He serves as the women’s secretary since none of them were allowed to learn to read and write. The subject matter is very intense and sometimes difficult to sit through. The film is nominated for a Best Picture Oscar and is the type you can wait for streaming.
