2 votes, 2.5 / 5 avg. rating (50% score) Based on the bestselling novel by Jack Ketchum and directed by Lucky McKee, "The Woman" is all about torture and dirty little secrets. A country lawyer tries to domesticate the last remaining member of a violent clan but in the process puts his own family in harms way.Starring Pollyanna McIntosh, Sean Bridgers and Angela Bettis, the film prompted furious debates and walkouts during its world premiere in the Park City at Midnight program at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. Reports surfaced of people becoming sick while watching the graphic scenes and one irate Sundance audience member went so far as to say "The Woman" "ought to be confiscated, burned. There"s no value in showing this to anyone." Whether a "wonderfully bizarre tale" or an "inhumane degradation of women"" you"ll have to decide for yourself.

Synopsis:

When a successful country lawyer captures and attempts to "civilize" the last remaining member of a violent clan that has roamed the Northeast coast for decades, he puts the lives of his family in jeopardy.
