Los Angeles, May 20 (PTI) “Nymphomaniac” actress Stacey Martin has been cast in Michale Boganim’s English-language debut “Borough Park”.

Martin, 26, will star as Rebecca, a 22-year-old woman who is disowned by her father, an esteemed rabbi, and is forced to leave Borough Park’s ultra-Orthodox Jewish community where she has lived her whole life, reported Variety.

“(Stacey) Martin has a sense of determination and a vulnerability that make her perfect for this role: she depicts her woman who as the strength to leave her family and start a new life which ultimately makes her vulnerable because she loses some of her identity,” said Boganim.

The production on the film is expected to begin in mid- September in New York and partly in Europe.
