Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Mr. Eisenberg and particularly Mr. Bartha give appropriately twitchy, live-wire performances, and the film tells its basically bleak story lucidly and with touches of dark humor.
Rotten: Holy Rollers feels staged and exoticized in the way stories about insular communities often do when told by outsiders.
Rotten: Holy Rollers offers an intriguing portrait of an insular community, but its recounting of the seduction of a bright young man by the surrounding culture is heavy-handed.
Fresh: It's sadder and scarier than its predecessors, but it also may be the most important chapter in the tale.

I thought that the whole movie was great except for the way they portrayed aranged marriage in the Jewish community . Very unrealistic
I've been to Crown Heights of Brooklyn New York. People do not do this.
