Joshua Weinstein (no relation to Harvey) has made a delightfully humane film, entirely in Yiddish, of the ultra-orthodox Hasidic Jew community in Brooklyn, NY. As a counterpoint to perfectly decent liberal Jewish representatives in MSM, it's refreshing to gain a clearer perspective on the lives of devout believers. It's the mundane realism of this tale which makes it so engaging. A compelling spectating experience.
A small film even by small film standards but its scope perfectly fits the scale of the story of a man trying to navigate between his personal desires, his commitment to his traditions, and his responsibility to his family. I could have added an extra star just for the delicate performances and the chemistry between the father (Lustig) and son (Niborski).
