A great portrayal of Hasidic Jews! A great true story!
24 July 2011 | by jjnoahjamesSee 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!
