Gett: The Trial of Vivane Amsalem
(nr) 115 min
in Hebrew with English subtitles

Trapped in a loveless marriage, Viviane Amsalem (Ronit Elkabetz) has been applying to the rabbinical court for a divorce from her estranged husband for three years. In Israel, where neither civil marriage nor civil divorce exist, only an Orthodox rabbi can legalize a union or its dissolution with consent from the husband, locking Viviane into a seemingly unending battle. By turns an absurdist comedy and a heartrending personal drama, Israel’s entry for the Best Foreign Language Film Academy Award is a moving portrait of a woman’s struggle to live a life of her own design.
