A new one just came out. It's called menashe. The actor is a frum person in real life.

Arranged (2007) is a movie about a religious Jewish woman and a religious Muslim woman who become friends at work. Both women are portrayed in a positive light.

Arranged is juvenile and not well researched.
Most good ones are Israeli such as fill the void and shtissel.

keeping up with the schwartzes was not about orthodox but it was cute and good.

Stranger Among Us (1992) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0105483/

It's really well done, well acted, and just a moving story. Honestly, we should all aspire to be like the Rabbi in this movie.

(I did a paper on the Jewish Father in Motion Picture in college, and this was one of the movies and the first one to pop into my head)

While shtissel is a great show, I would not say it shows chassidim in the best of light. Some of the story lines are extreme.

I watched shtissel in Hebrew. I have watched several of these stories. I watched fill the void and there was another one. I found that the basically trying to mix religious people with non-religious people and they do not show religious people in a great light they try to show that we have many kids and they try to show that the dating process in the religious community is pretty bad. I watched another one yesterday and they were trying to show about shaving how the girl didn't want to shave her here and her husband said that he wants it shorter. I cant explain it but a lot of these movies are anti religious but in a subtle way.

Did you mean the Yerushalmi community? Those people were acting like yeshivish Yerushalmis. Not chassidim.

Hey I watched fill the void as per your recommendation.
I don't know Hebrew that well. Can you explain me the ending in the yichud room? Why that depressed/upset face? I thought she finally agreed to marry him?
