Unorthodox (2020)

REVIEW: UNORTHODOX (2020)
Dir: Maria Schrader

Based on the book ‘Unorthodox: The Scandalous Rejection of My Hasidic Roots’

Shira Haas stars as Esty Shapiro, a Jewish woman, who runs away from Williamsburg to Germany to pursue a career in music. But her orthodox Jewish husband and community come as a hindrance to her dreams.

This series touches several sensitive issues without offending any cultural or religious sentiments. Majority of the dialogues are in Yiddish and Hebrew.

Culturally well researched and some brilliant performances by the lead cast make this a sensitive drama.

Unorthodox streams on Netflix.
