Goofs

Rochel comes home to dinner and sits down with the family. But she didn't wash her hands. Orthodox Jews wash their hands, say a prayer, and eat some bread before talking or eating at a meal. Only the religious Jewish viewers will look alarmed at this. But the director covers it. Rochel says the blessing before eating a meal with no bread. See more »

Teacher: We're forced to handle the challenges of ESL. Different cultural traditions, everything they enter the classroom with, serious family dysfunctions. Basically our schools, New York city schools, are one big experiment, one big laboratory in this exercise we call the American Experience. And we as teachers aren't equipped to deal with the task at hand. We're not, that's the sad truth. So, after lunch, I'll introduce some exercises designed to demonstrate what we all share, teachers ...

Excellent depiction of a friendship we all wish for
16 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Arranged is a beautifully shot and written film that will pull you right into a story that we all hope happens. An Orthodox Jewish woman and a Muslim woman are both teachers who meet and become friends, learning about each other without the fraught biases that so often stop such a natural connection. In this case it's also a sensitive look at marriages often condemned as arranged and overly religious but quite often happening in a positive and consensual way. The film is quite an accomplishment. I saw it at SXSW and the audience was enthralled, teary and ultimately happy - a testament to the power of this film to help cross bridges and wipe away stereotypes.
