Review is Written By Nikola Naylor-Warren
The movie Women Talking is about a conversation between women who are forced to find a new way to exist either within their reality or to have the courage to search, find, and create an entirely different reality within the universe outside of everything they have ever known and loved.
Each element of their value system has been shattered leaving them with the unknown to rely on. Their entire lives, their decisions, were based on tradition, duty, family, and faith in exchange for love, security, and peace within a community that lived within co-dependence of each other. Their conversation is about a decision that must be made and a bitter liberating solution they must agree on by facing the truth of their present reality and challenging each other to weigh the cost they will pay and their children will pay for the exhaustion of their in action.
The movie is a window into the psychological perspective of women have had to consciously tolerate, accept, and cope with the unconscionable.
This movie features a cast with a mixture of well known actresses and up and coming young actresses such as Frances McDormand and Claire Foy from the The Girl in the Spiders Web.
