In time, Rebecca is presented with a new music teacher, a polite man of indeterminate age. He turns out to be the son of a once famous piano virtuoso, a woman who then befriends Rebecca. Inept dreamer Veladiano gently but firmly eases the discreetly disciplined narrative along.
Rebecca often muses on the question of ugliness and her lack of physical beauty. Meanwhile, her aunt and father disappear from time to time. Yet the father remains something of an inept dreamer, comforting his patients and no longer expecting anything from life. Rebecca is very aware of the power of beauty, without confusing it with goodness.
Ugliness, she feels, inspires hatred and contempt but never pity. The world of this narrative is decidedly interior; rooms are summoned as so many stage settings. Indoors is perhaps seen as a fitting environment for a person who, denied a place in the physical world, is forced to exist in her head. When she recalls her classmates, they are less her enemy than she is theirs. She does not dwell on their cruelty to her, yet reflects upon it with reasoned detachment. It was not the unmistakable touch of my teacher, which had brilliancy and a slight unconscious tendency to draw long waves of sound, something that could barely be perceived: although the notation and expression of the score were respected, the entire sonority of the piece would rise and fall as if imitating a cradling movement of which he evidently was not aware.

Pearl Gluck, a thoughtful young woman who has left the Hasidic community in which she was reared, is one of several thoughtful critics of Hasidic narrow-mindedness. Another woman wonders why, if motherhood is so exalted, mothers cannot be among the group's rebbes, or spiritual leaders. In addition, a black Prospect Park employee in Brooklyn cites "spiritual arrogance" and the refusal of Hasidic children even to say hello.
Yet this film ultimately fathoms such stubborness, even as it wonders how strict Hasidic men can work in electronics stores where they violate certain religious rules to make peace with secular America. Nowhere in their teachings is there protocol for doing business with good-looking, flashily dressed female customers for modesty's sake, Hasidic women are required to wear wigs and long hemlines.
