At the Sabbath meal the assembled group dances to a "niggun" (wordless melody) that is traditional among Lubavitch Chassidim. It is usually sung as a preparation to one of the Rebbe's discourses being repeated from memory, though; not as a slow circle-dance. See more »
The Ariel character has a neatly trimmed and partially shaved beard, while explaining payes (side curls). Ultra-Orthodox Jews do not shave any part of their beard or neck. See more »
Poorly acted with worse writing and preposterous situations
Melanie Griffith is horribly miscast and would fool not one Hacedic Jew in Crown Heights with her undercover role. Tracy Pollan deserves a special Golden Turkey for the single worst supporting performance in a pivotal role in a drama. She single-handedly ruins any credibility the film might have ever had. The "oh-now-I'm really-beginning -to-appreciate-the-beauty-of-the Hacedic-culture scenes" are forced and contrived, especially the big family meal. John Pankow delivers the movie's most interesting performance in a thankless role.
