Movie Review: Menashe

  • Helen S. Block

    Saw the movie last night & enjoyed it on many levels, same as you. Nice review! (Maybe the Eizik character was played a little too rigid, ugh.) One question….don’t you mean “misnagid” rather than Litvak for a religious non-Hasid? You can clearly hear the word used by the older man asking for tzadaka (translated
    as “anti-Hasid”). Both of my grandfathers came from Vilna, we called them the Litvaks…I’m aware that place wasn’t one of the centers of Hasidism, maybe that’s why you used that word…..
