Trigger warning birth loss, miscarriage
Pieces of a Woman movie review
What an emotional ride Pieces of a Woman was. As a woman who lost 5 babies to miscarriage I can’t totally understand what she went through as my babies always passed early on in the pregnancy. But the emotions it brought out were all too real. It’s the perfect telling of what losing a child does to a family. How you have to fight to keep your family after it happens and so much more. This is a must not miss if you enjoy dramas. Out of 5 stars I give it 4.5! It’s an important story to tell. So many times we do not talk about what is hard. This was hard but so worth talking about! Women are amazing!
Martha (Vanessa Kirby) and Sean (Shia LaBeouf) are a Boston couple on the verge of parenthood whose lives change irrevocably when a home birth ends in unimaginable tragedy. Thus begins a yearlong odyssey for Martha, who must navigate her grief while working through fractious relationships with Sean and her domineering mother (Ellen Burstyn), along with the publicly vilified midwife (Molly Parker), whom she must face in court. Directed by Kornél Mundruczó (WHITE GOD, winner of the 2014 Prix Un Certain Regard Award), written by Kata Wéber, and executive produced by Martin Scorsese, PIECES OF A WOMAN is a deeply personal, searing, and ultimately transcendent story of a woman learning to live alongside her loss.
