The first trailer for Sarah Polley‘s Women Talking has been released online. Written by Polley and based on the book of the same name by Miriam Toews, the movie stars Rooney Mara, Claire Foy, Jessie Buckley, Ben Whishaw, Frances McDormand, Judith Ivey and Sheila McCarthy.
Its plot synopsis reads, “In 2010, the women of an isolated religious community grapple with reconciling their reality with their faith.”
The movie premiered at many film festivals last month, with our editor-in-chief Joey Magidson having seen it at Telluride, and stating that Polley’s film is “is an emotional powerhouse and a masterclass in acting. Quiet in its devastation but retaining a measure of hope, this is truly riveting cinema. Filmmaker Sarah Polley and her terrific cast tackle this tough material with great aplomb.” You can read his full review of the movie here.
