Dr. Gillian Helfield joins us virtually with a review of the film Working Women.
This Israeli film written and directed by Michal Aviad, tells the story of Orna, a married mother of three. Her husband recently opened a restaurant and is struggling financially. She decides to pursue a new career in real estate development, working as a coordinator and project manager.
As Orna discovers her talents and abilities in her challenging chosen field and feels she is growing and succeeding as a person, she simultaneously needs to deal with her husband's jealousy and her boss's growing obsession with her, and the accompanying abuse of power.
