The Women’s Balcony

Israel, 96m, DCP

An accident during a bar mitzvah celebration leads to a rift between the men and women in a devout community in Jerusalem in this rousing, good-hearted comedy. Awash with Jerusalem’s distinctive glow, this warm, poignant portrait of a modern community struggling to balance protocol with practical, progressive values is at once rebellious and respectful in spirit.
