The Wedding Plan
CAST: Dafi Alferon, Noa Koler, Oded Leopold DIRECTOR: Rama Burshtein ENDS JULY 20
At 32, Michal, an Orthodox Jewish woman, is finally looking forward to the comfort and security of marriage, when she is blindsided by her fiancé's decision to call off the wedding with only a month's notice. Unwilling to return to lonely single life, Michal decides to put her trust in fate and continue with her wedding plans, believing Mr. Right will appear by her chosen date. Confident she will find a match made in heaven, she books a venue, sends out invitations and buys a wedding dress, as her skeptical mother and sister look on with trepidation. As the day of the ceremony grows closer and no suitor appears, Michal puts everything on the line to find happiness.
Unexpectedly rich, "The Wedding Plan" uses the frame of an apparent romantic comedy as a vehicle to study religious faith, loneliness, culture and inner turmoil.Tom Long, Detroit News
Director Rama Burshtein's effort is a thoughtful and unique film that will be relatable to anyone who had to work a little to find love, even if it didn't take them quite so long.Josh Terry, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
