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 assaults 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.

Reviews

‘Women Talking imagines female emancipation as an honest, raging, caring experience.’
★★★★
Anna Bogutskaya, Time Out

‘Just as a war movie can encourage its audience to appreciate heroism and sacrifice, Women Talking reminds us of the value of language—its capacity for context, for constructive debate, and, in the end, for collective healing.’
Shirley Li, The Atlantic

Plan your visit

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!
