Winner of the Audience Award for 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 and dutiful housewife Nora (Marie Leuenberger, winner of a Best Actress award
at Tribeca) 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 newfound celebrity brings humiliation, threats, and the potential
end to her marriage, but refusing to back down, she convinces the women in her village to go on strike, and at the
same time she makes a few startling discoveries about her own liberation. Uplifting and crowd-pleasing, this
charming, captivating film is a time-capsule that could not be more timely. Switzerland’s submission for the
Academy Awards Best Foreign Language Film.
