“This potent drama could hardly be more relevant or effective.” - Variety
“In this expertly written, brilliantly acted film, Viviane struggles against her passive-aggressive husband and the rabbinical judges to legally end her marriage” – Variety
Winner of Best Film at the Jerusalem Film Festival, 2014, screened in Directors fortnight in Cannes 2014 to critical acclaim and nominated for 12 Ophir Awards (Israeli Oscars). Gett is a contemporaryexploration of divorce and long-term relationships punctuated by lighter moments. It is also a rare insight into the rabbinical court and its treatment of women. Viviane is refused a gett; a Jewish divorce which can only be given by a court of rabbinical judges and with the consent of her husband. The exhausting and absurd protocols Viviane is forced to endure, and the anguish caused by not being able to start a new life, does not stop her.
