Bali is world famous as a tourist para-dise but for some Balinese women the reality is more troubling. Approximately 10% of Balinese families are polyga-mous, and men in these unions often take multiple brides without their spouse’s consent. Filmed over the course of seven years, Bitter Honey offers the first in-depth exploration of these family's lives. Women from three polyga-mous families tell their stories of coercion, be-trayal, and domestic violence and share their courageous struggle for empowerment and equal rights.

These Limited Releases are Good and That's No Lie

October 3rd, 2014

The Good Lie poster

The list this week is less detailed than usual for reasons I'm not going to go into detail about. I'm just going to say two words, "Food poisoning", and leave it at that. There are not a lot of limited releases on this week's list that are earning good reviews and strong buzz.
