A black sheep of her London-based Orthodox Jewish family, Ronit, a New York photographer, returns home to pay her respects when her Rabbi father dies. Surprises await, as she finds her childhood friend Esti has married her father’s spiritual protégé. An old flame is reignited between Ronit and Esti – one that could torch everything this family cherishes most. Impressive performances by Weisz and McAdams add dimension to this nuanced portrait of a love affair, in a transfixing consideration of sexuality, personal liberty and religious conviction.
