Review: Transfixing 'Fill the Void' looks at love by arrangement
A mother and daughter anxiously scan the aisles of an Israeli supermarket. They're not looking for fresh produce but rather a clandestine glimpse of a young man a matchmaker has proposed as a potential husband for the daughter. The mother's eye is practiced as he comes into view — "You're going to do a lot of laundry" — but the daughter is delighted. At least for now.
