About the Movie

Winner of the Audience Award for Best Narrative Film at the Tribeca Film Festival, The Divine Order is set in Switzerland in 1971 where, despite the worldwide social upheavals of the previous decade, women were still denied the right to vote. When unassuming and dutiful housewife Nora (Marie Leuenberger, winner of a Best Actress award at Tribeca) is forbidden by her husband to take a part-time job, her frustration leads to her becoming the poster child of her town’s suffragette movement. Her newfound celebrity brings humiliation, threats, and the potential end to her marriage, but, refusing to back down, she convinces the women in her village to go on strike...and makes a few startling discoveries about her own liberation. Uplifting and crowd-pleasing, this charming, captivating film is a time-capsule that could not be more timely.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: "The Divine Order" effectively illustrates how peer pressure can influence the political process. – Ben Kenigsberg, New York Times, Oct 26, 2017

Fresh: Within the story's sometimes too-neat outline, Volpe lets most of her characters breathe. – Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times, Nov 16, 2017

Fresh: An entertaining if also largely predictable story of an individual swept up in the tide of history. – Boyd van Hoeij, Hollywood Reporter, Oct 6, 2017

Fresh: Judith Kaufmann's cinematographic style favors shadows that frame the faces of these women, and at times her camera pushes in for quick zooms as if we're in a tense Martin Scorsese picture. – April Wolfe, Village Voice, Dec 1, 2017
