"Working Woman is a beautifully performed drama about the everyday struggles of being female in the workplace. Orna (Liron Ben Shlush) is the mother of three young children whose husband is struggling to start his own restaurant. To help support her family Orna lands a job with a former army superior, Benny (Menashe Noy), who is now a successful real estate developer. While Orna embraces her new position and tries to balance its demands with her home life, she begins to experience escalating sexual harassment from her boss. Her rapid rise through the ranks and her increasing financial success seem to parallel a pattern of predatory behavior which ultimately brings her career and marital relationship to the brink. This timely and devastating story is expertly told by long time feminist filmmaker Michal Aviad."--Container.

I found this movie disappointing in many ways
Orna does not explain clearly to her husband what happened, leaving him to think the worst ( he could have been more supportive, but he is also a man and cared about his own feelings more than Orna’s)
She also leaves her mother to fill in the blanks
I don’t understand why, when she had raised her voice at Benny previously, she didn’t try to get away at all, it seemed out of her character up to that point
So, overall, for me not a great movie
