WIN: double passes to Working Woman

Posted Tuesday 04 Feb 2020

We have a second giveaway for you this week! This one is to the 2018 Israeli film Working Woman, directed by Michal Aviad and starring Liron Ben-Shlush, a film that brilliantly navigates workplace sexual harassment and it's complexities. Australia's The Age called it " A supremely clever movie, rooted in strong emotion that's rigorously controlled. A work of passion..."

Here's the plot: Orna returns to work and becomes the main breadwinner for her three children. Whilst hardworking, talented and ambitious, Orna faces increasing sexual harassment from Benny, her boss, which soon affects her entire life. When her world is finally shattered, she must pull herself together to fight, in her own way, for her job and a sense of self-worth.

The New York Times
said,"Despite its surface-level placidity, the Israeli feature Working Woman unfolds like a psychological thriller - a procedural that, as it tightens its grip, captures how workplace sexual harassment slowly takes over one woman's life."

We have five double passes to give away to a screening at one of the cinemas listed below (sorry, there are no Wellington screenings).
