Houston Jewish Film Festival: Matchmaking
Saturday, March 30 | 8:30 PM
Comedy | Directed by Erez Tadmor
2022 | Israel Hebrew with English subtitles | 98 Min. | Kaplan Theatre
Moti Bernstein (Amit Rahav from Netflix’s Unorthodox) is the son every mother wants, the ideal Yeshiva student, and the perfect match for every young Ashkenazi bride. But he falls for the one choice he can’t have: his sister’s best friend Nechama from a Moroccan Mizrahi family. Moti follows his heart and decides to go out on a limb. Who wins—the system or his inner voice? Featuring an award-winning cast, this Israeli box office sensation delivers a healthy dose of laughter in this modern-day Romeo and Juliet.
Join us for a pre-film reception at 7:45 PM.
