Critic Reviews for A Price Above Rubies

All Critics (30) | Top Critics (6)

Intense drama about Orthodox Jews has mature themes, sex.

Sep 30, 2014 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

A Price Above Rubies isn't a particularly good movie, though Zellweger shines in a tough, gritty role that foreshadowed her more serious acting ambitions.

Sep 6, 2010 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Yakin's argument is presented with such blind rage and fury that his little film goes from sensitive and perceptive to sensational and scandal-mongering very quickly

Jul 26, 2009 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Yakin dares to not only enter that neighborhood, but to find beauty and sadness in it, rather than something alien or foreign.

Thanks to Boaz (Fresh) Yorkin, we now have Bye, Bye, Hasid or better yet Escape from the Tefillin.

Dec 19, 2002 | Rating: 4/5

Writer and director Boaz Yakin has fashioned a beguiling drama about the deep yearning we all have to express our heart's desire. The film's title is from Proverbs 31:10.
