Ioan Gruffudd (the cult-fave star of A&E’s ”Horatio Hornblower” miniseries) plays an Orthodox Jew in 1911. Living in an anti-Semitic Welsh town, he keeps his religion a secret from his churchgoing girlfriend, even after impregnating her. This is the first feature by U.K. documentarian Paul Morrison.
