Based on a true story from the Mennonite community, this beautiful film is set in rural America. A group of women must decide whether to leave the religious colony where they have been sexually abused, and make a new life – risking eternal damnation and the loss of their menfolk. Their meeting in a hayloft to confront the intricacies of their life-changing choice is grippingly portrayed by the star-studded cast, who show us a group of powerful personalities battling to stay connected and loyal to each other in spite of their different views; Polley’s script won the Oscar.
