Speaking in Tongues
A powerful study of infidelity and interwoven lives, filmed as the award-winning Lantana.
A woman disappears. Four marriages become entangled in a web of love, deceit, sex and death. Who will survive?
Nine parallel lives – interlocked by four infidelities, one missing person and a mysterious stiletto – are woven through a fragmented series of confessionals and interrogations that gradually reveal a darker side of human nature.

"Clever, provocative, elliptically resonant."- New York Times
