Winner of Best Narrative Film at the Tribeca Film Festival, The Divine Order is set in Switzerland in 1971 where, despite the worldwide social upheavals of the previous decade, women were still denied the right to vote. When unassuming housewife Nora is forbidden by her husband to take a part-time job, her frustration leads to her becoming the poster child of her town’s suffragette movement. Her celebrity brings humiliation and threats, but she convinces the women in her village to go on strike, and makes a few startling discoveries about her own liberation. In German with subtitles. 2017. 1h36m.
