BRÁT’s review published on Letterboxd:
"I'm so sorry, Ona."
"One day, I would like to hear those words from someone who should be saying them."
a case study in universal empathy and righteous rage and fractured language and apologies that never come. director Sarah Polley is careful to refrain from depicting or reveling in any violence, opting to center the internal aftermath rather than the horrific inciting incident (which happened in 2009 to a Mennonite community in Bolivia).
more thoughts about Women Talking (including the controversial color grading) in my interview with the film's stars Claire Foy, Judith Ivey and Sheila McCarthy for Letterboxd's Journal! ;)
