MGM’s Orion Pictures and Universal Pictures Home Entertainment have announced “Women Talking” will be available to own on Digital starting February 21, 2023. For now, however, it remains to be seen where it will pitch its tent down the road, so far as streaming services go. Although the film is being distributed on home media by Universal and Orion, it was released theatrically by Orion only through United Artists Releasing (which may or may not complicate things when it comes to the streaming rights).
While many of the 2023 Best Picture Oscar nominees are already available to subscribers on a specific platform (or, in the case of “All Quiet on the Western Front,” went directly to Netflix), Sarah Polley’s drama was released late enough in 2022 that, for now, you’ll have to make do with a Digital purchase if you want to catch it ahead of the Oscar show itself. That is, unless, you count yourselves among the home media fiends of the world. If so, 1) Fret not, you’re one of us! and 2) If you’re patient and willing, you won’t want to wait too long to purchase a hard copy of “Women Talking” for your personal collection.
