The Pin

In this touching, romantic WWII drama, shot entirely in Yiddish, a lonely, old Jewish man flashes back many decades to his days of hiding in a Lithuanian barn, when he meets the beautiful Leah, still the great love of his long life. “The performances are moving…The Yiddish language is cast here as a primal expression of an Adam-and-Eve state of grace.” —Variety
