Unorthodox, Netflix – I was fascinated to watch this as I know very little about the Hasidic Jewish community. I ran the NYC marathon in 2018 and it was a bizarre experience to go from packed streets of cheering crowds for the first 11 miles of the race to deathly quiet as I reached Williamsburg home of the Jewish Orthodox Salmar community. This series has been highly praised in every review that I’ve seen, but I have to say I was left a little disappointed by the ending. I hadn’t realised it was only 4 episodes and I expected to learn more about the fate of the characters, especially that of Moishe who was the individual that interested me the most and whose backstory wasn’t explored.
