Seeking freedom, this drama series, follows the battles of a Jewish young lady, who lives in wretchedness and makes her mind to escape the arranged marriage she has and the confined standards of religion to have another life.
"Unorthodox" feels like a modest revelation: It uses familiar language to explore what it means to push beyond the strictures of ritual and community guidelines by digging into the mindset of a woman battling to think for herself.
To me, this is really the story of a young woman who wants more from her life, who bravely seeks a new way, who still loves her family and thinks even though she may be disappointing God, she must find her own direction.
We wish Unorthodox didn't have the menacing specter of Esty's estranged husband (more accurately, his family) interfering with her story of discovery, but the story is well-told despite the thriller aspect.
