The Women's Balcony

MA15+ Comedy

"The Women's Balcony has its cake and eats it too. It is funny and profound.” - RogerEbert.com

When the women’s balcony in an Orthodox synagogue collapses, the congregation falls into crisis. The rabbi’s wife is severely injured, and Rabbi Menashe, already in poor health, can’t cope with the disaster. Lacking a place of worship as well as the services of an ordained religious leader, the men of the congregation are thrilled when the charismatic, ultra-orthodox seminarian Rabbi David steps in. With Rabbi Menashe out of commission, Rabbi David is soon supervising the repairs to their beloved synagogue.

The charismatic young Rabbi appears to be a saviour after the accident, but he slowly starts pushing his fundamentalist ways and tries to take control. This tests the women’s friendships and creates a rift between the community’s women and men, sparking a showdown.

An Israeli box-office hit and a New York Times Critic’s pick; The Women’s Balcony is a rousing and good-hearted film about can-do women speaking truth to patriarchal power.
