They didn’t have the language to speak about the abuse they were suffering. The words of explanation they were given were ‘ghosts, demons or the wild female imagination.’ The film opens when they begin to find a language of their own and hence the title rings true, the women talk. Yet what follows is so much more. The majority of the film takes place in the same hay barn, with the same small group of women talking over their options which are as follows: stay and do nothing, stay and fight, or leave. If that sounds boring to you, I promise it is anything but. Through their prolonged dialogue, through screams, laughter, philosophy and theology, we gain insight into each woman’s position and the horrors that she has endured that occur off-screen.
