[Opens Jan. 13 in theaters.] Sarah Polley's poignant, award-winning, powerful, factually inspired, dialogue-heavy, superbly acted, unsettling, moving, well-written, taut, 104-minute film based on Miriam Toews' 2018 novel in which abused, strong-willed Mennonite women (Frances McDormand, Rooney Mara, Claire Foy, Jessie Buckley, Judith Ivey, Michelle McLeod, Sheila McCarthy, Emily Mitchell, Kira Guloien, Liv McNeil, and Vivien Endicott Douglas) in 2010 discuss their faith, the need to protect the children (Emily Mitchell, Lochlan Ray Miller Shayla Brown, Nathaniel McParland, et al.), and the pros and cons of various options of whether to forgive, to fight, to stay, or to leave their religious community after finally realizing that the duplicitous, hateful men have continually attacked, drugged, and raped them for years and blamed it on the devil and supernatural forces while the lone, kindhearted, college-educated schoolteacher (Ben Whishaw) takes minutes of their eye-opening, life-changing, cathartic conversations.
