The film is as much about the relationships between these women and how they are ennobled and encouraged by one another as it is about their political struggles.
I haven't seen this film topping many (any?) end of year lists, but it sure feels like the film on all the lists that everyone is talking about. Of course, everyone is saying different things about it, which is what makes it so interesting.
