My not-so-big ultra orthodox Jewish wedding. It’s all about beards, black suits, long curly sideburns, weird hats, traditional sing and dance, money–of course, many lots of old Rabbis and many lots of “Amen.” Shira’s older sister is dead, leaving a baby boy behind. And now the young accordionist is supposed to marry her brother-in-law. Of course, no one is pressuring her. Of course, it’s all her own decision to make. Yeah, of course.

My Rating: 8/10
