The Israeli film “The Women’s Balcony,” which is set in a traditional Orthodox community in Jerusalem, has become an unexpected box office hit both in Israel and the United States.

Distributed by Menemsha Films, “The Women's Balcony” is being screened in the top 25 markets in the United States. In an exclusive interview with Jewish News, Menemsha’s president Neil Friedman projected the film will earn between $1 million and $1.5 million at the U.S. box office.
