Difret Review

Image for Difret

During an attempted kidnapping in Ethiopia, 14-year-old Hirut shoots her abducter. A young female lawyer attempts to plead self defence in a biased legal system.

★★★★★

Exec produced by Angelina Jolie, this story of a female lawyer defending a teenager for murdering the rapist who abducted her is quietly compelling, but lacks finesse in its characterisation and dogged denunciation of the Ethiopian justice system.
