Movie Info

Carrie Lowstein (Madeline Grey DeFreece) and Hannah Rosen (Rachel Sennott) have been inseparable for as long as they can remember. When their former Hebrew school classmate, Samantha Goldstein, commits suicide, the two girls go to her funeral as well as the "Teen Talk-back" session designed to be an opportunity for them to understand grief through their faith. But, after an innocent kissing exercise turns Carrie's world inside out, the best friends find themselves distracted by the teenage complications of lust, social status, and wavering faith.

Critic Reviews for Tahara

All Critics (14)

Most appealing was how perfectly the dialogue, pacing, and fantasy animations inclusively capture post bar/bat mitzvah adolescents, including manipulative Mean Girls.

Unfurling compellingly more or less in real time, director Olivia Peace and screenwriter Jess Zeidman-both making impressive feature debuts-establish an acerbic, The Breakfast Club type atmosphere

November 12, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Tahara perfectly captures the mood of the place and the juxtaposition of its efforts to spread wisdom and awareness with the chaotic lives of its young attendees.

November 6, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It's a unique debut, and with poignancy shows the importance of growing into ourselves and out of toxic relationships.

Carrie and Hannah are not bad kids, but, like a lot of teenagers, they're governed more by their hormones than by Judaic law.

October 22, 2020 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

Kudos to screenwriter Jess Zeidman for writing such rich characters, and to the ensemble for keeping them authentic.
