Based largely on the real life of its Hasidic star Menashe Lustig, 'Menashe' is a strikingly authentic and deeply moving portrait of family, love, connection, and community.
It's a warm, life affirming look at the universal bonds between father and son that also sheds unusual light on a notoriously private community.
