Romeo and Juliet in Yiddish
Dir. Eve Annenberg (2010). Mumblecore in mameloshn: The first Yiddish talkie produced in the US in nearly 60 years (and the first ever with a nude scene), Eve Annenbergs attitudinous Satmar Shakespeare riff is a unique blend of psychodrama, ethnographic experimentation, and high-concept hustle.
