A very inventive and unexpected indie
16 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Perhaps the smartest aspect of this film as that it subverts the expectations of modern re-tellings of Shakespeare, in that to whatever extent it takes on the source material it's almost as an afterthought. Instead writer/director Annenberg takes the culture clash and grafts it onto the Orthodox Hasidim in Brooklyn, but even then it's with a whimsical and irreverent tone. The structure is ambitious and even within the confines of a micro-budget a lot of winning material is mined. The effort is emboldened by a very strong, quirky and effective cast which combined with Ms. Annenberg's gleeful subversions transcend the limited production.
