GETT, le procès de Viviane Amsalem

msmichel's rating of the film Gett: The Trial of Viviane Amsalem

Masterful storytelling examining the Israeli Orthodox rabbinical courts and the prevalent lack of status a woman still has in this antiquated system. A woman petitions for divorce, where the law states it can only be with the husband's consent, and finds herself in a years long struggle that puts her on trial literally and figuratively. Co-director Ronit Elkabetz gives a masterful performance. A must see.
