When a Jewish jeweler is found dead and his store is missing more than one million dollars in diamonds, a New York police detective (Melanie Griffith) goes undercover in a community of Hasidic Jews to find the criminal. Once she is immersed in the community, she falls in love with one of the most devout members, who helps her find the criminal.~Stephen Thomas Erlewine
As always Melanie Griffith was great in this movie. Wife and I are big Fans of hers.
I would recommend this to a friend
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I first saw this movie years ago and when asked by a friend to name some of my favorite movies this one popped into my head. Taking a genuine look into a community that few know of and fewer even recognize on the street, we see how they live, work and social with others. This movie is one of the unrated successes of it's time. It is beautifully written, acted, directed: I am sooo happy that it made it's way on DVD. It is one of those movies that you watch over and over. I still cry at the end.....
