Working Woman

Orna (Liron Ben Shlush) is the mother of three young children with a husband struggling to start his own restaurant. To help support her family, she returns to the workplace, landing a job with a former army superior, Benny (Menashe Noy), who is now a successful real estate developer. While Orna embraces her new position and tries to balance its demands with her home life, she begins to experience escalating sexual harassment from her boss. Her rapid rise through the ranks and her increasing financial success seem to parallel a pattern of predatory behavior which ultimately brings her career and marital relationship to the brink. This timely and devastating story is expertly told by long time feminist filmmaker Michal Aviad.

"Unfolds like a psychological thriller...satisfying...effective...gripping." -- Ben Kenigsberg, New York Times

“TIMELY AND POWERFUL.... The latest from Israeli director Aviad arrives at just the right cultural moment, being an insightful drama about sexual harassment in the workplace, and the power dynamics that trap women in an office with their abusers.... Ben-Shlush is riveting as a competent, capable woman coming apart under the constant, smothering stress of a situation she never thought she’d experience.” – Norman Wilner, NOW MAGAZINE

“This tightly-focused workplace drama could hardly be more timely... Finely-drawn characters and the kind of grey-area scenario that may be uncomfortably familiar to many women make this a thought-provoking addition to the post #metoo conversation.”
– Wendy Ide, SCREEN DAILY

FEATURED REVIEW: Ben Kenigsberg, New York Times
Despite its surface-level placidity, the Israeli feature “Working Woman” unfolds like a psychological thriller — a procedural that, as it tightens its grip, captures how workplace sexual harassment slowly takes over one woman’s life. The movie, directed Michal...
