A woman returns to her Orthodox Jewish community that shunned her for her attraction to a female childhood friend. Once back, their passions reignite as they explore the boundaries of faith and sexuality.
This films message struck a chord with me. There isn't an intricate plot or storyline but the acting left nothing to be desired and the chemistry between actors was intense at times. I appreciated the subtle, nuanced pieces of acting that made this movie shine through as authentic and made the characters very real.
This is a film about persons ability to change, and how some of us can change quickly while others have to go at their own pace. It's a simple message but there is something comforting about being reaffirmed via film that we are all just trying our best to be better and that it takes time.
Overall I'm rating this 7/10. The acting and the message were wonderful but in the end, it's a one-time watch.
