Women Talking15

Directed by Sarah Polley | USA | 2022 | 1h 44m | Starring Rooney Mara, Claire Foy, Jessie Buckley, Frances McDormand, Judith Ivey

A group of women living in an isolated religious community struggle to reconcile their faith with a string of crimes committed by the men of the colony. In a sunlit barn, the women debate: should they stay, as is expected, and forgive their attackers? Or flee to create a new life for themselves? A politically charged story of shared trauma and solidarity starring Jessie Buckley, Rooney Mara, Claire Foy and three-time Oscar winner Frances McDormand. Nominated for for two Oscars, including Best Picture.

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
