Film Review: “Dough” rises to the occasion

Jonathan Pryce stars as an Orthodox Jewish baker who takes a Muslim teen under his wing in this cross-cultural comedy.

These days, Jonathan Pryce is known best for playing the fanatical, puritanical, religious leader The High Sparrow on “Game of Thrones.” Back in the day, though, he was a cult-movie icon as the hapless Everyman at the center of Terry Gilliam’s dystopian 1985 comedy “Brazil.” In the new movie “Dough,” he combines a righteous glare and a disarming smile to play an Orthodox Jewish baker in London who takes a Muslim teen under his wing.
