Corrected entry: Danny Balint spends all his formative years in a yeshiva. The friends he meets from the past each wear a yarmulke, a sign of being an Orthodox Jew. Yet when he goes to the synagogue after being invited, there are women wearing "talliths" (or talithim in Hebrew) as well as the mixing of men and women in the congegation. This would never happen in an Orthodox synagogue.

Correction: All Jews, whether orthodox, reform or conservative, have the choice to wear yamulkes. Because the friends were wearing yamulkes does NOT automatically mean that they are orthodox Jews. It is perfectly viable that they wore yamulkes as non-orthodox jews, and therefore attended a non-orthodox synagogue.

Daniel Balint: You wanna know the real reason why we hate them? Because they exist. We have all the reasons we need in three simple letters. J-E-W... Jew! You say it a million times, it's the one word that never loses its meaning.



When Daniel comes home on the evening of Yom HaKippurim, and his girlfriend wants to have a traditional meal, you can see by the light that it's sunset. Yet when right afterwards he's walking down the street, you can see that it's a much earlier time of the day.



For personal reasons, Ryan Gosling drank heated Coca-Cola instead of coffee during the interview scene.
