About the Movie

This tense, compassionate, stirringly acted drama, written and directed by Sarah Polley, is based on Miriam Toews’ acclaimed novel about of a group of women from a remote religious community dealing with the aftermath of sexual assault perpetrated by the colony’s men.

The film is set within a Christian cult, where men keep their wives and daughters uneducated and dependent—and drug and rape them, attributing the attacks to supernatural demons.

When one man, denounced by a woman, is arrested, all the men head to town to bail him out. While they’re away, a delegation of women gather in a hayloft to choose their course of action.

“Women Talking” features an ensemble cast that includes Rooney Mara, Claire Foy, Jessie Buckley, Judith Ivey, Ben Whishaw, and Frances McDormand, who also served as a producer on the film.

It was named one of the top ten films of 2022 by the National Board of Review and the American Film Institute, won Best Adapted Screenplay at the 28th Critics’ Choice Awards, 75th Writers Guild of America Awards, and the 95th Academy Awards, where it was also nominated for Best Picture.

Dinners will be served promptly at 6:30 p.m. before each film. After dinner, head upstairs for the movie at 7:30 p.m. The cost for dinner is $30 and includes your seat for the movie, all food, coffee, tea, water and a box of popcorn to enjoy during the film.
