“It’s the first film to be directed by an Orthodox woman for a mass audience. Just to have an Orthodox film made is challenging enough, given all sorts of religious restrictions,” Bernheimer says. “Orthodox women are not supposed to look men in the eye, so for one to make a feature film, that caught my attention. This is definitely a romantic story, something women will be interested in. It’s a beautiful story, very Jane Austen-like.”
