Woman at War

A movie that seems to be perfectly suited for the times. The Icelandic-Ukrainian film centers on a middle-aged woman who lives a secret life as a radical environmental activist. Her latest mission to sabotage an aluminum factory is complicated when she is approved to adopt a child. Though dealing with very serious and relevant subject matter, the film has been celebrated for its unexpected light approach to the material.
