Gett: The Trial of Viviane Amsalem
Riveting and thought-provoking
A strange and astonishing court drama. Viviane Amsalem is on trial begging for a divorce from her unwilling husband. Designed to throw a light on the ancient religious legal system which controls divorce in Israel, this spellbinding film highlights how women today are still at the mercy of both their husbands and the religious courts where tragedy vies with absurdity, and where all aspects of a marriage are exposed for judgment.
