She could not handle chassidus so she made a movie instead.

A movie released just yesterday entitled "Divan" deals with a Jewish girl (Pearl Gluck) from an ultra orthodox background. She sees her religion as to confining for her taste so she decides to move on and see the world. Her movie discusses a strange tale concerning an ancestral couch upon which esteemed rabbis slept, Pearl Gluck travels from her Hasidic community in Brooklyn to her roots in Hungary. Maybe I'll become Modern-Orthodox and I'll do a movie on my Yeshiva Background..going back to my roots in the glowing bright lights of the various Yeshivas I learned in. I'll be in search of an ancestral pill box my great Rebbe used....ok maybe not.
