Set in the Russian-Jewish enclave of Brighton Beach during the 1980’s, this contemplative coming-of-age/ coming-out story follows the soul-searching journey of David, a closeted gay Yeshiva student who moves in with his grandfather in a Jewish religious center where he becomes the tenth man in a Jewish quorum called a minyan. Accompanied by a klezmer-infused jazz score, the two worlds of his dual identity collide as seen through the soulful and smoldering eyes of actor Samuel H. Levine who carries the film in the lead role of David — every bit as beautiful as the statue in Italy.
