Mendy: A Question of Faith Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

One Jewish man's drug-fueled crisis of faith sets the stage for a soul-bending spiritual journey as he slowly branches out into the secular world in a film inspired by a 1997 Voice article concerning the ex-members of the Satmar sect. By filling his cast largely with Orthodox and formerly Orthodox actors, director Adam Vardy creates a believable environment in which the titular character's desperate search to find himself leads him to try his very first cheeseburger, experience the first painful pangs of true love, and accompany his spiritually corrosive Brazilian roommate to a series of seedy strip clubs as they test the limits of contemporary faith. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
