Fill the Void:

Not exactly a Hasidic musical, but close to it. Israeli director Rama Burshtein and actress Hadas Yaron weigh in on this dramatic feature delving into the complicated culture of Orthodox Jewish arranged marriages. And filling in the void, so to speak, about a case of perhaps multiple choice matrimonial options managed in many ways by mom, and screen emotions ‘all about what you feel, and not what you say.’
