Brilliant - Must See
20 April 2020 | by deborah-99172See all my reviews

A realistic window into the cloistered world, rites and behavior of Hasidic Judaism in Williamsburg, NY, and a woman who doesn't quite fit. Excellent acting, writing, editing, directing. Shira Haas, the lead, is phenomenal. The dramatic tension is intense as the story unfolds in both a present time and flashbacks. I highly recommend. Two thumbs up. 10 stars. If you like a nuanced, vulnerable, compassionate story, I hope you will watch.
