About the Movie

Trapped in a loveless marriage, Viviane Amsalem (Ronit Elkabetz) has long sought a divorce from her devout and stubborn husband Elisha (Simon Abkarian). But under Israeli law, all divorce proceedings are overseen by an Orthodox rabbinical court, which can only dissolve a marriage with the husband’s consent. And despite their estrangement, Elisha refuses to grant Viviane a gett (bill of divorce), inciting an intense domestic battle of wills. Fearlessly acted, written and directed (with her brother Shlomi) by Elkabetz (THE BAND'S VISIT), one of Israel’s finest actresses, GETT: THE TRIAL OF VIVIANE AMSALEM is at once a brilliantly-crafted and riveting courtroom drama, and a searing indictment of an uncompromising and archaic legal system.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Gripping cinema from start to finish, almost implausibly so. – Manohla Dargis, New York Times, Feb 12, 2015

Fresh: The divorce-centered drama is so provocative it's become a lightning rod for debate inside the country. Even watching from a distance is unnerving. – Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times, Feb 12, 2015

Fresh: Methodical and agonizing, much like the five-year dispute it depicts. – Mark Jenkins, NPR, Feb 12, 2015

Fresh: Almost all of the film takes place inside a courtroom, at irregular intervals over five years, but there is no sense of drag or slump; on the contrary, the action quivers with tension, impatience, comic heat, and, beneath it all, an irrepressible rage. – Anthony Lane, New Yorker, Feb 16, 2015
