Gett: The Trial of Viviane Amsalem

GETT 550“Expertly written, brilliantly acted … judiciously alternates between scathing drama and bitter comedy.” –Variety

An Israeli woman (Ronit Elkabetz) seeking to finalize her divorce from her cruel and manipulative husband finds herself effectively put on trial by her country's absurdly strict religiously based marriage laws, in this riveting drama from sibling directors Shlomi and Ronit Elkabetz (THE BAND’S VISIT), a man’s intransigence, a woman’s strength and determination and a rigid system makes a failed marriage into an object of dark, absurd tragicomedy.  (Israel, 2014, 115m, Music Box Films, digital)
