Trivia

Sam calls his father "tateh," which is a Yiddish term of endearment for a father (akin to the English word "dad"). See also Ragtime (1981). See more »

Goofs

In a scene between Sam and Rachel in an apartment there is a more recently designed bottle of Vitaminwater on a table bar top (tropical citrus flavor?). As a site note, Glacéau's brand of VitaminWater was not distributed until the early 2000's which puts the product a few years off from when the film was meant to be depicted. See more »

A great portrayal of Hasidic Jews! A great true story!
24 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Holly Rollers set's out to tell the story of Sam a honest Hasidic Jew growing up in NYC. Based on a true story Sam ends up with the wrong people after some harsh things happen in his life, and he eventually ends up over seas to sell "medicine".

I thought the acting was above par all around, and the story was great, as well, and even a little bit fun. I love the NYC environment in any movie. That's just me, and this is no exception. I felt like I was in the city.

Over all it was worth watching and I would recommend it for something to watch on a rainy day!
