    MENASHE (Joshua Z. Weinstein 2016)

    A24 has announced the US theatrical release begins July 28, 2017.

    This little charmer about a wayward bereaved father and his little boy, somewhat looked down on by the Orthodox community but full of love and good intentions, is one of the very few films acted in Yiddish in the past 70 years. It's well worth watching and one of ND/NF 2017's best offerings.

    The Metacritic rating is 81%.

A superb, altogether unique examination of Napal, a nation whose citizens are at a crossroads, "White Sun is a delicately-observed, multi-generational story which will prove awards-bait at in the Oscar Foreign Language category.
