Shira Haas made an indelible impression as the Emmy-nominated lead in the recent TV series Unorthodox. In Broken Mirrors (2020, 104 minutes, Hebrew with English subtitles), Haas plays Ariella, a seventeen year old girl shadowed by a strict, military father who inflicts severe methods of punishment as a form of discipline. When Ariella commits a grave error that her father isn’t willing to punish her for, she seeks a punishment of her own, embarking on a dark quest where she discovers a secret to her father’s past that leads them to confront one another.
