Details

Documentary filmmaker Joshua Z Weinstein makes the transition to narrative features with this remarkable, delicate and critically acclaimed account of a widower trying to maintain custody of his son. Shot covertly in Brooklyn’s Hasidic Jewish community with winning, unself-conscious performances by a largely non-professional cast, this charming film is the first in roughly seventy years to be performed entirely in Yiddish, offering a valuable and authentic insight into this most insular and private of worlds.

£5.50 ticketsFri 29 Oct (12.45)

Menashe is a quiet triumph, delivering an engaging drama of intimate detail and considerable humanity.
