Always Another Side
15 December 2019 | by westsideschlSee all my reviews

An Israeli storyline that is, in part, about a father as a humanist Jew, and more generally about the problems that we create can have different POVs & thus solutions. In this script this father has problems w/his estranged daughter; his divorced wife; & his business associate. The problems come together about the time his daughter decides not to go to the US for her college education, but instead, against family wishes, decides to stay & marry an Orthodox Jew with a controversial history. A decision making dilemma occurs that exposes each of their POVS thus ending up making apparent the solutions to their problems. Note: This quote from the movie about Orthodoxy "Men are forbidden from hearing women sing, not the other way around."
