In 1971 Switzerland, despite the worldwide social upheavals of the previous decade, women are still denied the right to vote. When unassuming and dutiful housewife Nora (Marie Leuenberger) is forbidden by her husband to take a part-time job, her frustration leads to her becoming the poster child of her town’s suffragette movement. Her newfound celebrity brings humiliation, threats, and the potential end to her marriage, but, refusing to back down, she convinces the women in her village to go on strike...and makes a few startling discoveries about her own liberation

Why not join us for dinner after the film at The Empress Restaurant, a short walk from the theatre or park in at rear with entrance via Sturt Ave on Greenhill Rd.
