Women with Cows
Women with Cows is a twisted Grey Gardens set on a crumbling Swedish farm. Stubborn, 70-something year-old Britt Georgsson has spent a lifetime milking and is devoted to her cows. Her sister Inger couldn’t wait to escape the bovine torture – she married and left the farm but is now begrudgingly drawn back to help. Despite being literally doubled over by a badly healed back injury, Britt soldiers on, but the government steps in and it is Inger who must decide on her loyalties. Beautifully and respectfully shot, this intimate fly-on-the-wall documentary is a touching reminder of the importance of family, compromise and compassion.
