Movie Info

In a half-changed world, women often feel they need to choose: mothering or working? Your children's well-being or your own? Responsibility or self-expression? Five fierce women refuse to choose. Through their lives, we explore some of the most problematic intersections of our time: mothering and creativity, partnering and independence, economics and art.

Sometimes strident and combative, and sometimes celebratory and encouraging, uneven pic often feels like a cobbled-together recap of '70s feminist issues, still patently unresolved.

This documentary encapsulates everything that gives feminism a bad name, from whining about patriarchal society to celebrating the goddess within.
