Sonia is a young wife in New York's Hasidic community. Her husband is a very devout Orthodox Jew whose shyness and sexual inhibitions are inadequate to Sonia's hunger for experience and life. His brother who gives Sonia a job in his jewelry business and uses her sexually is not the answer either. The film's title is taken from a psalm that refers to the value of a valorous woman, and it is a fine if somewhat unsubtle film. Zellweger is a marvel in the lead role of a woman bursting with life in a repressive subculture (much better than in her more famous appearances in "Jerry Maguire" or "Me, Myself & Irene"), and Eccleston is memorable in the rather one-dimensional, Mephistophelean role of the brother-in-law.
