Storyline

Switzerland, 1971: Nora is a young housewife and mother who lives with her husband, their two sons and her father-in-law in a little village. Here, in the Swiss countryside, little or nothing is felt of the huge social upheavals that the movement of May 1968 has caused. Nora's life, too, has been unaffected; she is a retiring, quiet person, well liked by everyone - until she begins to campaign publicly and pugnaciously for women's right to vote, an issue that will be put before the male voters on February 7th, 1971.

Wonderful, Spot-On Styling
3 February 2019 | by seanmichael-31752See all my reviews

Just saw this film, read a scathing review here, and felt compelled to balance the scales for this great movie. We loved it! Visually it is 100% on point: the cinematography, costumes, hair, sets, and styling. The acting was also very strong, and the script solid. Not sure what the negative reviewer watched, but we felt it was a great ensemble cast that achieved many emotional, nuanced moments. I am drawn to "period pieces" like this and found it to be quite wonderful. I will be recommending it to friends.
