A 19-year-old Jewish woman named Esty runs away from her arranged marriage and Ultra-Orthodox community in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. She moves to Berlin, where her estranged mother lives, and tries to navigate a secular life and take classes at a music conservatory. Her husband, who finds out she was pregnant, travels to Berlin with his cousin, by order of their Rabbi, to try to find her.

The series was inspired by, and is loosely based on, the memoir Unorthodox: The Scandalous Rejection of My Hasidic Roots by Deborah Feldman, who left the Satmar movement, a Hassidic community in New York City. The show has language switching from English to Yiddish to German. The show was written by Anna Winger and Alexa Karolinski, directed by Maria Schrader, produced by Karolinski, and filmed in Berlin. Unorthodox is the first Netflix series to be primarily in Yiddish.

I finished this last night and genuinely loved it from start to finish. The cast are relatively unknown but it's an incredibly strong ensemble, and we'll probably see some of the main actors in other things if this ends up being super-successful.

Well worth a watch for anyone who needs a tv show atm. It's only four parts so it has a really nice pace and isn't too heavy-handed plot-wise.
