Israel 2014 115 mins. In Hebrew, Arabic, French

“Gett” is Hebrew for a divorce decree—something that is very difficult to get in Israel, where rabbinical courts hold jurisdiction and mutual consent is required. This riveting drama follows the five-year struggle of Viviane Amsalem (Ronit Elkabetz) to break from her loveless marriage to husband Elisha (Simon Abkarian). A powerful examination of the roles of men and women in a religious society. Gett, the winner of two Israeli Film Awards including Best Film and Best Supporting Actor, is an absurdist journey into the enigmas of a couple and a society caught between tradition and modernity. This year’s Israeli submission for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar. In Hebrew, French, and Arabic with English subtitles.
