Melanie Griffith as … an Orthodox Jew?!
March 14, 2009
Dear David Inman: I saw a movie on TV about a murder in an Orthodox Jewish community. The victim was a diamond merchant. Two gentile women were involved. Can you tell me the title and if it’s on DVD? – A.B., Springfield, MO
Dear A.B.: Sounds like “A Stranger Among Us,” a 1992 film with Melanie Griffith, Tracy Pollan, Eric Thal and Eleanor Reissa in a moving performance as “Yiddish Woman #2.”
It’s on DVD.
