TIFF 2011: The Hasids Are Coming In The Trailer For SORRY, RABBI

Todd Brown, Founder and Editor
Mark Slutsky's new short film Sorry, Rabbi will soon premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival and the stills featured on Twitch a couple weeks back have now been followed by a poster - courtesy of artist Matt Forsythe - and a trailer, embedded below.

Sorry, Rabbi is a Montreal-set comedy about the cultural clash that comes to the fore when young Mile-Ender Josh (Jacob Tierney) butts heads with a group of Hasids living next door. Surrounded by angry Hasidic men, Josh is astonished to find himself accused of anti-Semitic violence. He's Jewish himself, if non-practicing - what would his mother think? With a bleeding Hasid, an exasperated Rabbi and Josh's newly broken heart jostling for space in a crowded office, who's telling the truth?

Though the film itself is actually a fairly lighthearted poke at truth and perspective Slutsky has cut a hilariously serious trailer for the film. Take a look. Jessica Pare and Jacob Tierney star.
