Critic Reviews for Menashe
Invites audiences into the insular world of Hasidic New York via a character they won't soon forget, memorably embodied by first-timer Menashe Lustig.
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.
It offers us a first-person view into a completely different community, but relates to us with the universal dread that we're bound to fail, sooner than later.
The real strength of Menashe lies with its ability to be a fly on the wall of a fragile existence that can take any number of unexpected turns.
Weinstein's charming Menashe immerses us in an authentic environment of ultra-Orthodox Judaism and makes it relatable by weaving a sweet story familiar in its general contours, of a single father struggling to hold onto the son he loves.
