Movie Diary 3/25/2015

Gett: The Trial of Viviane Ansalem (Ronit Elkabetz, Shlomi Elkabetz, 2014). The movie almost never leaves the courtroom, as an Israeli wife tries to convince a religious tribunal to let her divorce her husband. A skin-crawling movie, superbly acted (Ronit Elkabetz also plays the wife), and hewing to the cramped confines of the limited-perspective film. (full review 4/3)
