Laughable in its accuracy level

This film takes hours to have the camera linger on superflous scenes, and the orthodox jews are innacurate. It is dumb.

Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
age 18+

Warped misrepresentation of Orthodox Judaism

Just from watching the trailer, it is glaringly evident that the producers of this movie do not understand the Orthodox Jewish world and base the plot off preconceived biases. Orthodox Jews as a whole have strong values and do not follow the laws out of meek "obedience." I would look elsewhere for an accurate glimpse into true Orthodox Jewish beliefs.
