In the ultra-Orthodox world of a Hasidic Jewish community in Brooklyn, strict religious traditions frown upon a child growing up in a home without a mother. By ignoring the precedent, Menashe risks ostracisation from the community he loves; worse, his son Rieven could even be refused access to school.
Blessed with impressive depth and a warm touch of humour, this sympathetic glimpse into the life of a community rarely depicted on screen is a fascinating and heartfelt study of fatherhood versus religious duty.
