Sonata

APARNA SEN
India, 2017
90 minutes, Color

With an all-female ensemble, including director Apana Sen and legendary Indian actresses Shabana Azmi and Lillete Dubey, Sonata is a heartfelt meditation on happiness and compromises that simultaneously challenges Indian norms concerning family and friendship and long-standing stereotypes of Bollywood films. The film follows three unmarried, childless women in their 50s over the course of a wine and gossip-filled night as they share their candid stories about men, love, and friendship. Despite being stuck within the constraints of a patriarchal society, all three women embark on a journey to overcome their midlife crises by coming to terms with demons of the past—not without the help of unconditional friendship. Sonata tackles huge societal structures as it pushes boundaries and aims to break the mold on multiple different fronts. It proves to be an authentic and subtle film on contemporary women and the uncertainties of life.—Various sources
