Television Review -- Unorthodox

Television Review -- Unorthodox

This week I experienced a lot of entertainment about cultures outside of my own. This series is one of the best about a culture I find is not spoken about enough. Unorthodox is based on a memoir by Debora Feldman. The series follows a young woman born and raised in the Orthodox Jewish community within Williamsburg, New York. As she turns nineteen, she flees to Berlin, Germany. This series follows Etsy through her journey both inside and outside of the community, which I found to be the most interesting part. Not only is the series a learning experience of a culture, but a document of someone’s trauma that is both respectful and not overdramatic. While there is the stereotype of a large Jewish community being present in Hollywood, there a few actual representations of any part of the Jewish community. This series is a highly recommend on my list.
