THE WOMEN’S BALCONY
A huge box office hit in Israel, The Women’s Balcony (2017) was also a critic’s pick of the New York Times. “The Women’s Balcony” is a portrait of an already devout community suddenly under pressure from a super Orthodox rabbi to observe their faith in a more rigid way. While the mood is that of a gentle and affectionate comedy, the film makes some extremely sharp points about fanaticism, sexism masked as holiness, and tolerance among the faithful.
With rich character and a thoughtful approach to timely themes, The Women’s Balcony tackles complicated subjects with intelligence, compassion and wit.
