- ‘Menashe’ Review: Father-Son Tale Offers Rare Glimpse Into the Hasidic Cloister

Since much of modern life — including most films — are forbidden in Hasidic culture, and because the film was shot semi-surreptitiously, it’s unclear whether there could be repercussions in this strict, tightly-knit community for those involved in this secular undertaking.Audiences should be grateful the filmmakers and actors took the risk and gave us an intriguingly vivid look into this rule-bound, sequestered society.Not a documentary, but based on the real-life experiences of Menashe Lustig, director Joshua Z. Weinstein’s film was shot guerrilla style in Brooklyn’s Borough Park over the course of two years, and almost entirely in Yiddish.Weinstein co-wrote the film with Alex Lipschultz and Musa Syeed; producer Danny Finkleman, a Hasidic Jew himself, served as both advisor and gatekeeper, ensuring genuine representations of the ultra-Orthodox Jewish community.“Menashe” is thoroughly absorbing and offers a fresh and probing look at a cloistered community living in plain sight on busy New York streets.The boy was not taken away by the courts, but by rabbinical dictate.Because Menashe’s wife died, the religious leader deemed it appropriate for Rieven to live with his aunt and uncle.See Video: 'The Polka King' Star Jack Black Promises Polka Tour if Movie Hits Theaters (Exclusive)The film winds up compelling both from a cultural and sociological angle and as a universal story of a parent yearning to be with his son.
