Movie Info

When a Jewish jeweler is found dead and his store is missing more than one million dollars in diamonds, a New York police detective (Melanie Griffith) goes undercover in a community of Hasidic Jews to find the criminal. Once she is immersed in the community, she falls in love with one of the most devout members, who helps her find the criminal. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

Stuck with a permanently detached lead actress who juggles snappy cop jargon and sex appeal with all the concentration of pothead.

I was deeply disappointed that the film ended up seeming too much like a promo for the conservative religion it espoused.

What could easily have been another irritatingly earnest, clueless depiction of orthodox Jewish stereotypes, unfolds as an involving, challenging, and (most importantly) respectful treatment of [an] oft misrepresented religion

One of Lumet's weakest films. this is a dramatically preposterous and emotionaly unsatisfying tale of culture collision, further hampered by a reverential but inaccurate portrait of the Hassidic culture.

A fantastic performance by Thal....genuinely captivating

Halfway through this fascinating drama, it becomes clear that the filmmakers are less interested in solving the crime than in conveying the spiritual dynamism of the Hasidic community.
