Women Talking --- 2 1/2 Stars --- January 6, 2023

A group of Mennonite women gather to discuss their long endured sexual assault and rape, a situation the community has ignored for too long.  Women Talking showcases a group of talented actresses including Jesse Buckley, Rooney Mara, Claire Foy and Judith Ivey.  As the title implies, the plot turns on women discussing their position and what to do about it---Leave?  Stay?  Bargain?  The dialog drives the story - a tall order for any film.  Based on a real-life case that occurred in Bolivia in 2009.
