Woman's Name

98 minutes/color




"Despite being very of the moment, Marco Tullio Giordana's Woman's Name was in fact conceived over three years ago and focuses on the issue of sexual harassment in the workplace. In the era of #MeToo and #Timesup, and a renewed awareness of the dignity of women in the face of subversive harassment and discrimination, Giordana's film arrives as a manifesto of rebellion, with its protagonist brought to life by Cristiana Capotondi" - wrote Cineuropa about movie. It's a story of Nina, a young woman who moves to a small village in lower Lombardy with her daughter and finds a job in a prestigious private hospital where many other women, both Italian and foreign, also work. This small, ragtag community of females is nevertheless very much united - by a secret, among other things.
