A Film That Appears To Be Worth Seeing

This looks good and has gotten a lot of recent attention and critical acclaim. It has also generated controversy. It opens in New York and Los Angeles May 24, 2013. Directed by Rasha Burshtein, an Orthodox Jewish woman who lives in Israel, it’s a window on ultra-Orthodox Jewish women and the world they inhabit. Of the film, Burshtein says the following:

It’s a portrait [of ultra-Orthodox life], but an honest one. I’m showing you the real thing without criticism.

Not everyone, apparently, views it as such.
