“Should women abandon religion?” Four female panelists face off in a wild, whip-smart public debate about religion and misogyny. With opinions flying from a progressive Muslim lawyer, an Orthodox Jewish spiritual leader, an excommunicated nun and a lesbian atheist pundit, Unholy delivers a hilarious, no-holds-barred look at contemporary women in organized religion.

★★★1/2 (out of 4) “Brilliantly acted.” - The Globe and Mail

★★★  (out of 4) “A fast-paced passionate debate.” - Toronto Star
