We watched the movie for 35 minuets and would highly recommend that you do not not watch this movie unless you are Jewish. If you do watch the movie you will find the religion is very unforgiving and not accepting of certain types of people like gay & lesbians it is forbidden. It is slow & boring and all people do is look at each other with the expression "I don't like or trust you, because you are different". Everyone ask each other how are you and the answer is always a slow soft fine. I felt someone should say I feel lousy my dad died and people are treating me with distrust. I am sure if we had stayed with it to the bitter end we may have learned a lot but I would rather hit my thumb nail with a hammer. The only reason I checked out the DVD was the high ratting it got from others, but now I suspect these came from people who belonged to the Jewish faith.

Great cast and superb acting. Very emotional story too. Singing parts done beautified too, extremely well incorporated into the story. Everything worked well in this movie.

When I first read the storyline, I thought 'oh no, yet another gay movie...' but this is such a good movie: great acting, directing, editing and the whole works. Two of my favourite actresses on screen; what can be better. It's a 'heavy' on the emotions type of movie so probably not a good date night movie, but good with friends and families to generate discussions after.

Four out of five stars as I wasn't sure about the ending...what it exactly meant. Open to so many interpretations.

Extremely well acted however the ending left me totally confounded.

This romantic/drama film starring Rachel McAdams and Rachel Weisz is about a woman returning to her Orthodox Jewish community after the death of her father. She is left struggling with fitting in around the same people who alienated her for her attraction to her female friend while growing up. After the two women meet again, they begin to explore their sexuality and their relationship with one another under the guise of their faith. I found the movie to be fairly honest about the role that religion plays in our lives and how it can both bring people together and pull them apart. The movie was fairly believable and nothing felt like it was just being played up for the cameras. I would rate this movie 4.5/5 stars and recommend it to anyone longing for a heart-warming and honest film. @The_Reviewer of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library
