Fill the Void, November 2014

Fill the Void, showing Thursday 27 November 2014 at the Cranleigh Film ClubIsrael 2012. Director Rama Burshtein.

Certificate U

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.

90 minutes.
