The critics agree, this standout feature film at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival is not to be missed. Filmed in the heart of one of New York’s ultra-Orthodox communities, MENASHE is the story of a father struggling to keep custody of his son. Filmed in Yiddish (with English subtitles) and loosely based on the real life of the main character, MENASHE is a unique look into an otherwise closed world. It is a tender film of love and faith and the struggle to balance both, with a back story that makes you wonder how the film ever got made.
