Last night we finally got to see Holy Rollers and it was spectacularly relevant. Like most movies that look into Hassidic culture, they missed many technical details (tefillin straps) and muffed the hebrew. Fine. That’s to be expected. What they did do, at least for me, is tap into the emotional response to very heavy situations and philosophies. Mark Eisenberg’s character walked the fine line between modern and ancient worlds and showed us in sharp contrast how different they truly are. Perhaps it got a bit moralistic at the end, but what story about sin and repentance wouldn’t?
