Foreign Film Friday: Gett

FROM ISRAEL: In Israel only rabbis can legalize a marriage dissolution, and only with the husband's full consent. Viviane has been applying for a divorce for three years but her husband will not agree. His cold stubbornness, Viviane's determination to fight for her freedom, and the ambiguous role of the judges shape a film in which tragedy vies with absurdity, and where everything - except her actual request - is brought out for judgment. This highly acclaimed film delivers two hours of nonstop, tightly wound, and brilliantly acted drama. Not recommended for viewers under 17. Sponsored by Jane and Bill Murray. No registration necessary.
