Sarah Polley is adapting Miriam Toews’s Women Talking and the cast is perfect.

Two of my favorite living artists are collaborating and I couldn’t be happier. Sarah Polley has come onboard to adapt Miriam Toews’s brilliant, disquieting 2018 novel Women Talking, about a group of women in a rural religious community coming to terms with the serial sexual abuses committed by the men in their midst (based loosely around events at a Mennonite colony in Bolivia). Polley, who’s last feature film was 2011’s wonderfully understated Take This Waltz, is also responsible for one of this century’s finest literary adaptations, 2006’s Away From Her, which was based on Alice Munro’s heartbreaking story “The Bear Came Over the Mountain” (Polley wrote the screenplay and directed).

‘Women Talking’: Frances McDormand to Star in Drama for Director Sarah Polley

Frances McDormand (Three Billboard Outside Ebbing, Missouri) has lined up her newest starring role – and it sounds like it could be a pretty harrowing one. McDormand is set to star in Women Talking, the latest film from Away From Her and Stories We Tell director Sarah Polley. The movie is about a group of women who live in a colony and attempt to keep their faith after the men of the colony commit multiple sexual assaults.

Sarah Polley To Direct Frances McDormand In ‘Women Talking’ Adaptation

Too long has passed since Sarah Polley directed her last feature film. Eight years, to be exact, with the tremendous and long-lasting documentary Stories We Tell. Geezus, I still can’t shake that movie from my brain. Well, she’s ready for her comeback, and who better to do it with than Oscar winner and perennial nominee, Frances McDormand?

Frances McDormand and Sarah Polley are bringing Women Talking to the big screen.

It’s supremely gratifying to look upon a piece of literary adaptation news and think to yourself: perfect. Such was the warm, all-is-right-with-the-world-feeling I felt earlier this morning after reading the announcement that Sarah Polley will direct Frances McDormand in an adaptation of Miriam Toews’ 2019 novel Women Talking (to my mind one of the finest novels of the past decade).

Frances McDormand Teams With Director Sarah Polley For ‘Women Talking’ Film

It’s been eight years since filmmaker and Academy Award-nominee Sarah Polley made a feature-length film (2012’s incredible “Stories We Tell,” which we put high on our list of the Best Documentaries of the last decade). To be fair, she wrote and executive-produced 2017’s mini-series “Alias Grace“ and finally resurfaced this year directing episodes of CBC Comedy short series “Hey Lady!” But she’s back for real in the feature space and teaming up with a bevy of talent. MGM’s Orion Pictures and Brad Pitt’s production company Plan B has set Polley to write and direct a feature adaptation of Miriam Toews’ bestselling novel “Women Talking.” It gets better; Academy Award-winner Frances McDormand (“Three Billboards“) will star.
