Ferdinand, a little bull, prefers sitting quietly under a cork tree just smelling the flowers versus jumping around, snorting, and butting heads with other bulls. As Ferdinand grows big and strong, his temperament remains mellow, but one day five men come to choose the "biggest, fastest, roughest bull" for the bullfights in Madrid and Ferdinand is mistakenly chosen. Based on the classic 1936 children's book by Munro Leaf.
"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.
