Eva, a young mother of two, is sent on holiday to the South of France by her husband to relieve her stress. There she meets free-spirited feminist and lesbian Liliane who lives in a commune. Eva feels strangely drawn to Liliane.
A huge hit in its native Netherlands, Nouchka van Brakel’s second feature is her most explicitly feminist work. Starring the brilliant Monique van de Ven (Turkish Delight) as a woman who leaves her family for her female lover, A Woman Like Eve is a deeply compassionate tale of personal emancipation.
