Stranger Says: When an Italian textile plant changes owners, the fate of the workers falls to 11 female employees who must decide what to make of a seemingly innocuous request by their new bosses. (The title is a clue.) Based on a play, this material probably worked better on the stage, as the scenes set outside the conference room tend to dilute the momentum of the central conflict. Still, there’s a lot to like here, especially in how quickly the script and cast firmly establish the impressively diverse range of personalities. The post-movie conversations should be good.
