Music Box Direct: Gett: The Trial of Viviane Amsalem

Trapped in a loveless marriage, Viviane has long sought a divorce from her devout and stubborn husband Elisha. 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. Despite their estrangement, Elisha refuses to grant Viviane a gett (divorce papers), inciting a riveting domestic battle of wills. Directed by Ronit and Shlomi Elkabetz. (Israel, 2014, 115 minutes)
