Women Talking

Wednesday, March 1st, 2023;   Reviewed by: Nicola Webb

5/5 The Independent;
91% Rotten Tomatoes;
4/5 Empire Online;

The bald plot facts are that the women of an isolated religious colony reveal a shocking secret about the colony’s men. For years, the men have occasionally drugged the women and then raped them. The truth comes out and the women talk about their new situation.

Overall, the critics say whileĀ Women Talking sometimes forsakes entertaining drama in favour of simply getting its points across, its message is valuable – and effectively delivered.
