Most of the action takes place between Sonya's birthday, which is in July, as evidenced by her birthstone, the ruby), and Yom Kippur, which is in the early fall. However, in all the outdoor scenes, it is clearly winter, as evidenced by the winter coats on all characters and extras. See more »
I am not Jewish and I don't have much knowledge regarding the principles of this religion, I can see how this film was less then favorable among the community who is aware of its culture more then I am. The story line was vague at points and we were left with unresolved meanings behind the interaction of Sonia with many characters we meet outside of Hasidic community. I must say however that Renée Zellweger who played Sonia Horowitz was brilliant in this film, her acting, her demeanor, her power, her vigor. Powerful! She carries this film among the rest two-dimensional characters and for that alone I will give the film 10/10.
