“In a hayloft on a prairie far away some Mennonite women gather to conspire. They have choices—just like us: they could do nothing; they could stay and fight; or they can leave. The metaphor is as clear as the light, for they need to outlast the abuse they endure from men. We never see these men, but we read their power in the women’s eyes. This adaptation of Miriam Toews’s novel has a gravity that may remind us of Carl Dreyer, but the epic description of a female imagination in a rural landscape is pure Sarah Polley” (David Thomson, Telluride Film Festival).
