Unorthodox Review

What do you need to know about the Unorthodox Netflix series:

Unorthodox is a short 4 episode TV-mini series available on the Netflix network. It is based on a true story kind of drama that will really touch you emotionally. I do not remember being touched by a movie or series that has anything to do with religious content other than the famous Jesus of Nazareth. I am Orthodox Christian and the title of the series made me want to watch it and in the end, it was worth watching. It may have to do with the Jewish religion but the message it gets to the public is universal and is called free will. The series wants to tell us that everyone has the right to live as he chooses in his life and no one can force him how to do it. The series should definitely be on your list, I recommend it and it deserves all the respect from everyone. Also, the main actress Shira Haas who plays Esther Shapiro fits incredibly well with the role and I can not imagine another actress from the ones I have watched to fit better here.

Unorthodox plot by Cinemoviez:

Esther Shapiro is a married 19-year-old girl who finds it difficult to adapt to the Jewish way of life. She decides to leave and change the life they forced her to live. She is trying to make a new beginning where she will find many difficulties in front of her while her past haunts her.

Pros and cons of Unorthodox series:

The positives are that it is based on true events which makes it even more interesting and it is an emotional story. I would also describe it as somewhat educational because you will learn a lot about the beliefs and ideology of the Jews. The downside is that according to the readers of the book it is not exactly as expected but this only concerns them and in general it is a very good series. The only thing I did not like about the Unorthodox is that it left me with some questions towards the end.

Rating by Cinemoviez:

Unorthodox should definitely be on your list and it is one of the few series that I would tell you to recommend it your friends as well because it is very good. My rating is 8.5/10 for Unorthodox and many congratulations to those who contributed to the production.

Will there be a second season for Unorthodox?

Unfortunately, there will be no second season and there is no official announcement from the Netflix network about it so far.
