Women Talking trailer: watch the first teaser of Sarah Polley’s film


On Monday, Orion Pictures, United Artists and MGM released the first official trailer for their upcoming drama ‘Women Talking,’ which Polley stars in her feature directorial debut since 2012’s ‘Stories We Tell’. adapted from the screenplay of the novel of the same name by Miriam Toews.

The film follows a group of women from an isolated religious community who must struggle to reconcile their reality with their faith. It features Rooney Mara, Claire Foy, Jessie Buckley, Ben Wishaw, Frances McDormandand Judith Ivey. After premiering at the Telluride Film Festival in September to rave reviews, the project is a top contender for awards of the year, including Best Picture, Best Director for Polley, and Best Actress in a supporting role for Foy and Buckley.

You can take a look at the trailer here:

“In ‘Women Talking,’ a group of women, many of whom disagree on key things, have a conversation about how they might move forward together to build a better world for themselves and their children,” said Polley said in a statement. “Although the backstory behind the events of ‘Women Talking’ is violent, the film is not. We never see the violence that women have suffered. We only see brief glimpses of the consequences. Instead, we watch a community of women come together as they must decide, in a very short period of time, what their collective response will be.

She added: “When I read Miriam Toews’ book, it touched me deeply, raising questions and thoughts about the world I live in that I had never articulated. Questions about forgiveness, faith, power systems, trauma, healing, guilt, community and self-determination. It also left me with disconcerting hope. I imagined this film in the realm of fable. While the film’s story is unique to a small religious community, I felt it needed a grand canvas, an epic scope through which to reflect the enormity and universality of the issues raised in the film. To this end, it seemed imperative that the visual language of the film breathe and develop. I wanted to feel in each image the infinite potential and possibilities contained in a conversation about how to remake a broken world.

“Women Talking” hits a limited release on December 2, with a wider rollout slated for December 25.
