Shown at the Cannes festival and Israel’s submission for the 2015 Academy Award, “Gett” is a poignant depiction of a woman’s struggle to regain her dignity and independence in today’s Israel. Viviane Amsalem, the main character, has been trying to divorce her husband Elisha before the only legal body competent to hear such cases in her homeland – the Rabbinical court.
