In return, they are forced to learn a thing or two about modern life.

An Israeli woman (Ronit Elkabetz) seeking to finalize a divorce (gett) from her estranged husband finds herself effectively put on trial by her countrys religious marriage laws, in this powerhouse courtroom drama from sibling directors Shlomi and Ronit Elkabetz. In Israel, there is neither civil marriage nor civil divorce; only Orthodox rabbis can legalize a union or its dissolution, which is only possible with the husbands full consent. Trapped in a loveless marriage, Viviane Amsalem has been applying for a divorce for three years but her religiously devout husband Elisha (Simon Abkarian, Casino Royale, Persepolis), continually refuses. His cold intransigence, Vivianes determination to fight for her freedom, and the ambiguous role of the rabbinical judges shape a procedure where tragedy vies with absurdity and everything is brought out into the open for judgment. Winner of the Israeli Film Academy Ophir Award for Best Picture and propelled by the craft of Ronit Elkabetz (Late Marriage, The Bands Visit), one of Israeli cinemas most acclaimed actresses, Gett: The Trial of Viviane Amsalem is an uncompromising, heart-rending portrait of a womans struggle to overcome an unmoving patriarchy and live a life of her own design. (Fully subtitled)

About

The Sunday Night Film Club (SNFC) gets together at a DC-area theatre every Sunday to watch a film as a group, and then discuss it over dinner and drinks. There is no cost to join the club (other than your ticket and anything you may spend on food/drink afterwards) and there's no obligation to attend every week. It's just a very casual group of people that like film, period.
