Surprisingly good

I was so pleased by how this movie came out. While showing a great deal of skepticism about how two educated young women will manage to hold on to their insular and unpopular religions in modern New York without retreating into enclaves, it refuses to trivialize their faiths. There is a character (their boss) who tries to perform that function for them, and the director clearly is unsympathetic to her -- in fact risks making her a silly caricature of ignorant intolerance. The young women, in the meantime, find common ground and make peace with their respective traditions. Most directors would have been quite unable to resist either creating a Romeo-and-Juliet crisis or leaving the audience with a condescending and edgy conviction that the women failed in courage when they did not choose emancipation.
