Adapted from Miriam Toews’ acclaimed novel of the same name, Academy Award®-nominated writer-director Sarah Polley’s (AWAY FROM HER, STORIES WE TELL) latest considers the cloistered lives of a group of women residing in an isolated, religious colony. When their spirituality is shaken by the discovery of widespread sexual abuse within their Mennonite community, they clandestinely gather to try and reconcile their devout faith with their growing desire for justice. Featuring sensational performances from Frances McDormand, Claire Foy, Rooney Mara, Jessie Buckley, and Judith Ivey, WOMEN TALKING is a triumphant tale of faith, sovereignty, and the responsibility we have to ourselves and others. A United Artists release.

Scheduled to attend on October 11: Actors Judith Ivey and Sheila McCarthy
