    For all religious Jews, this is a private issue which have no place on the big screen. Furthermore, it’s not something to giggle about as some of the girls are seen doing in the preview. The Lubavitcher Rebbe, of blessed memory, would himself have distanced himself from this film, as can be seen from his writings.
    The following are the words of the Lubavitcher Rebbe zt”l, taken from
    “Beautiful Within-Modesty in Concept and Dress as Taught by the Lubavitcher
    Rebbe,” translated by Sholom B. Wineberg

    “Our Sages explain that tznius must be observed in every aspect of Jewish
    life, including speech and thought. When G-d said that he bears witness that the
    Jewish families remained holy and pure [in ancient Egypt], there was but one
    single exception among the millions of Jews [Shelomis bas Divri]. This solitary
    deviation occurred because there was a lack of tznius in speech. This individual
    did not speak in the manner expected of a Jewish woman or daughter. Herein lies
    an even more profound lesson. One may demand of Jewish women and daughters that
    tznius be applied not only to something so fundamental as dress, but also with
    regard to conversation! There as well, G-d blesses and enables us if we but so
    desire that even our conversations with one another be conducted in a manner of
    tznius.”
