showtimes and tickets

FILL THE VOID tells the story of an Orthodox Hassidic family from Tel Aviv. Eighteen-year-old Shira is the youngest daughter of the family. She is about to be married off to a promising young man of the same age and background. It is a dream-come-true, and Shira feels prepared and excited.

On Purim, her twenty-eight-year-old sister, Esther, dies while giving birth to her first child. The pain and grief that overwhelm the family postpone Shira's promised match. Everything changes when an offer is proposed to match Yochay – the late Esther's husband – to a widow from Belgium. Yochay feels it's too early, although he realizes that sooner or later he must seriously consider getting married again. When the girls' mother finds out that Yochay may leave the country with her only grandchild, she proposes a match between Shira and the widower. Shira will have to choose between her heart's wish and her family duty.


*NY Times CRITIC'S PICK*
"The deeper drama of FILL THE VOID has to do with self-knowledge, and it is this – the sense we have of witnessing a young person figuring herself out in the most challenging circumstances – that makes the film both accessible and thrilling. It is completely unexpected, and entirely believable."
-A.O. Scott (NY Times)

"This meticulously composed, highly specific movie simultaneously has profound universal appeal…One of the year's best films."
-Robert Levin (AM NY)

"Burshtein's lush visual sensibility, and the subtle performances of the excellent cast, create an aching portrayal of longing and interdependence that transcends the boundaries of the family's small world."
-Diana Clarke (Village Voice)
