Britain’s largest Jewish film festival opened with a sell-out screening of a Czech film about shtetl life in the early 20th century. “Hanele,” which some are criticizing for reinforcing stereotypes, centers around the disruptions on family life when a Jewish father forbids his daughter from marrying a non-Jew. The Brighton Jewish Film Festival, which is in its fourth year, runs through Nov. 25.
