Trapped in a loveless marriage, Viviane Amsalem has been applying for a divorce for three years but her religiously devout husband constantly refuses. In Israel, only Orthodox rabbis can legalize a union or its dissolution, which is only possible with the husband's consent. Winner of the Israeli Flim Academy Ophir Award for Best Picture, film critics call this movie "Gripping cinema from start to finish assured, streamlined, and bold." "Provocative." "Brilliant." "Riveting." "Mesmerizing ."
