Within Brooklyn’s ultra-orthodox Jewish community, Menashe battles for custody of his son after his wife dies, since they live in a culture that requires a mother present in every home. Menashe’s Rabbi decides to grant him one week to give him a final chance to prove that he can be a capable parent.

MUBI's take

A hit with audiences at the 2017 Berlinale, this fiction debut from cinematographer Joshua Z. Weinstein examines the complex nature of parental bonding. Taking to the streets of New York’s Hasidic neighborhoods, Menashe is an eye-opening portrait of a community and a heartfelt ode to fatherhood.
