My Father My Lord (2007)

March 23, 2009

A film about the Haredi community, this wonderful film (by David Volach) is a fabulous lens into that world, showing with sensitivity and deftness the struggle with faith that a Haredi rabbi and his wife face when they are confronted by a devastating tragedy.  It’s a universal movie in that way, but it’s also a wonderful way of getting insight into the Haredi world, its customs and beliefs.  Unforgettable.
