Based on the best-selling novel by Miriam Toews, the women of an isolated religious community grapple with reconciling their reality with their faith. Though the backstory, we see a community of women come together to figure out how they might move forward together to build a better world for themselves and their children. Stay and fight, or leave. They will not do nothing.

This timeless parable​, which won an Oscar this year for Best Adapted Screenplay, features a stellar ensemble including Claire Foy, Frances McDormand, Rooney Mara, Jessie Buckley, Ben Whishaw and more.

"Superbly inventive... an atmosphere of empathy, reason and wit pervades Polley’s film"- 5 stars, Mark Kermode, The Guardian
