Dir. Rama Burshtein (Israel, 2016, 110 min.)

Winner, Best Actress & Best Screenplay, Israeli Academy Awards

The deeply observant Orthodox 32-year-old Michal (Noa Koller) has always been desperate to marry, and finally she's met a man, gotten engaged, and rented the hall for her wedding. But on the eve of the great event, her fiancé confesses he doesn't love her, and the wedding is called off. Undeterred, Michal refuses to cancel her wedding plans. She firmly believes that God will provide a husband by the eighth day of Hanukkah. With the clock ticking and matchmakers on the case, Michal begins her quixotic search for the perfect mate, with results that are hilarious and uncanny.

In her first film, the acclaimed Fill the Void, American-born Israeli filmmaker Rama Burshtein gave us a dramatic study of marriage in the Hasidic community. Here she adopts a looser style, giving us something new: an ultra-Orthodox romantic comedy. In Noa Koller she's discovered a wonderfully expressive comedian who makes the quirky, determined, insecure Michal an unforgettable and unique screen hero.

"Brings romantic comedy to the Hasidic community, with...pleasing results." --Jay Weissberg, Variety
