Director Rama Burshtein cites Jane Austen as her primary influence. She shows how the Orthodox Jewish middle class daughters in Tel Aviv have limited options in life.
Parents want secure and convenient marriages. In this story a feisty young woman has too much pride to just fall into a convenient arranged marriage. Her attitude causes problems in this patriarchal society.
A superb central performance by the lovely Hadas Yaron.
