First screened in September 2017
Director: Sebastián Lelio. Cast: Rachel Weisz, Rachel McAdams, Alessandro Nivola, Allan Corduner, Cara Hogan, Bernice Stegers, Anton Lesser, Nicholas Woodeson. Screenplay: Sebastián Lelio and Rebecca Lenkiewicz (based on the novel by Naomi Alderman).

Twitter Capsule: Can't make big claims for intricacy or originality but Lelio and cast create a subtly plausible world. Terrific score.

VOR:   There might not be Big Filmmaking Lessons to take away from this movie, but there are many small ones. Impressive on community, faith, and sexuality.
