I don’t want to put you off watching this film but I have to be honest, it’s hard hitting and a little disturbing. I grew up in Dalston which is just round the corner from Stanford Hill in East London, which is where this film is set. I’m familiar with the site of Hasidic Jews, but I don’t really know much about their community. This film is about a young man struggling to find out who he is, and rejecting the strict culture bestowed on him. Eye opening, well written and very well acted.
