Gett: The Trial of Vivian Amsalem
directed by Ronit Elkabetz, Shlomi Elkabetz
An Israeli woman seeking a divorce from her estranged husband is effectively put on trial by her country’s religious marriage laws. This tightly wound film shows an uncompromising fight for freedom and a heart-rending portrait of a woman’s struggle to overcome an unmoving patriarchy to live a life of her own design. A powerhouse courtroom drama.
