Antonia, an independent single mother, returns to her Dutch village after World War II to run her late mother’s farm. Once she and her daughter are settled, this “feminist fairytale” spins a multigenerational yarn about a community of strong women and local outsiders cultivated by Antonia. Written and directed by Marleen Gorris (A Question of Silence), the film is a big-hearted, fresh look at women brushing against patriarchal norms to find autonomy and pass those lessons on to the women who come after them. Gorris weaves a¬†fantastical and sensitive tapestry about the highs and lows of life. Even in the face of tragedy, this Academy Award-winning poetic parable radiates whimsy and radical affirmation.
