Fresh off its Sundance premiere, this charming story of faith and parenthood is set in the heart of Brooklyn’s ultra-orthodox Jewish community, where a kind, hapless grocery store clerk battling to keep custody of his son is given one week by the rabbi to prove his suitability as a father. In Yiddish w/English subtitles. Rated PG.
