Directed by Nina Menkes
Accused of murdering a john, prostitute Ida is hurled into a psychic vortex where incarceration, therapy and religion are employed to reveal her to herself but fall far short of the mark. Only solidarity with her friend Claire offers solace, as the two recite the essential details of the situation of women, to be both used and punished by men, masterfully revealing the film’s radical thesis with arresting candor.
