The Wedding Plan | Filmfest Event

The Charleston JCC WOW Filmfest presents: THE WEDDING PLAN

Wednesday, August 23 @ 7 pm

Tickets $12.50 available soon

Discussion to follow the movie

Michal, an Orthodox Jewish woman, is blindsided when her fiancé calls off their wedding in this nuanced Israeli film. She puts her trust in fate and continues with her wedding plans. Will Mr. Right appear by her chosen date?

This prickly, delicately layered film from Rama Burshtein — an ultra-Orthodox director based in Israel — has the tangled ambiguity of a Talmudic lesson.

Ben Kenigsberg | The NYTimes
