“Immaculately made, intellectually adventurous and politically incisive…” – Todd McCarthy, Deadline Hollywood Daily
“Much has been said about the year’s best films not attracting the audiences they deserve. Women Talking is not what one would call a crowd-pleaser, but it is an extraordinary piece of work that is well worth your time. ” – Leonard Maltin, leonardmaltin.com
