Shot in secret entirely within New York’s Hasidic community
in Borough Park, Brooklyn, Menashe is one of the only films to be performed in
Yiddish in nearly 70 years. A warm, life-affirming look at the universal bonds
between father and son that also sheds unusual light on a notoriously private
community - Menashe follows a kind but hapless grocery store clerk trying to
maintain custody of his son after his wife passes away. The tradition-bound
culture requires a mother present in every home and father and son are
threatened with separation. When his Rabbi decides to grant them one more week
to spend together, their time reunited creates an emotional moment of
father/son bonding as well as offering Menashe a final chance to prove to his
sceptical community that he can be a capable parent. Based largely on the real life of its Hasidic
star Menashe Lustig, the film is a strikingly authentic and deeply moving
portrait of family, love, connection, and community.
