Once Upon a Time In . . . Tel Aviv
In Rama Burshtein's ('Through the Wall') fascinating, gripping exploration of life within an ultra-orthodox Jewish community, a young Hasidic woman is pressurised by her family to marry the widower of her recently deceased sister.
As tense and gripping as any thriller, this insight into a largely closed-off world is a breathtaking study of the struggle between family bonds and individual freedom.
