Women Talking has had Oscar pundits talking since its festival premieres in Telluride and Toronto, with buzz surrounding actors Claire Foy, Jessie Buckley, Ben Whishaw and Polley herself as writer-director, adapting Miriam Toews’ 2018 novel about a group of women who meet to discuss abuse in a small religious colony.Laura Poitras is a past Oscar winner, for her 2014 documentary about whistleblower Edward Snowden, and is heavily favored to enter the doc race again for this year’s All the Beauty and the Bloodshed, centered on photographer Nan Goldin’s attempt to hold Purdue Pharma responsible for the massive rise in opioid deaths (similarly explored in the Hulu series Dopesick last year).Despite plaudits and awards aplenty for his novels and stories, Nobel Prize winner Kazuo Ishiguro has only written a handful of film scripts, and his latest for the Bill Nighy-starring Living might be his ticket to Hollywood’s big night.
