MENASHE (PG) 82min
Genre: Drama. Dir: Joshua Z Weinstein. Country: USA. Some English subtitles.
Deep in the heart of New York’s ultra-orthodox Hasidic Jewish community, Menashe – a kind, hapless grocery store clerk – struggles to responsibly parent his young son, Rieven, following his wife Leah’s death.
Tradition prohibits Menashe from raising his son alone, so Rieven’s strict uncle adopts him, leaving Menashe heartbroken.
Meanwhile, Menashe’s rabbi grants him one special week with Rieven before Leah’s memorial.
It’s his chance to prove himself a suitable man of faith and fatherhood, and restore respect among his doubters.
A beautifully warm and delicately woven film.
