"This was an incredibly powerful movie and hard to watch. Women Talking has a calm, almost serene quality, which makes the fleeting glimpses of the horrors these women and children went through even more bone chilling. The outstanding ensemble cast delivers incredibly nuanced and grounded performances that should give this movie a solid place among the academy award nominees. 9 out of 10"
"A powerful film with a thought-provoking exploration of the meaning of forgiveness and what is the right thing to do in a difficult position. Top notch performances across the board (especially Jessie Buckley, Rooney Mara, Claire Foy, and Ben Whishaw) and especially Sarah Polley’s screenplay (I hope this wins Adapted Screenplay at the Oscars). More people need to see this."
"I thought this would be a boring film about pioneer-type women. It should be boring, taking place mostly in a barn, but it keeps you hooked into the possibility of taking action and its consequences. "
