Adult Education Movie – Sunday, December 3, 2017, 2:00 pm  “The Wedding Plan”

The Wedding Plan is a much-acclaimed Israeli film, opened in the U.S. in May, 2017 to glowing reviews.  Its main character has won Best Actress award at a number of film festivals.  Runtime:  110 minutes.  Subtitles.  The first in our winter film-series!  Michal, a 32 year-old unwed ultra-Orthodox woman – a “spinster” by the standards of her community – is finally looking forward to marriage, when her fiancé suddenly calls the wedding off a month before the event.  Mortified, and adamantly refusing to return to single life, Michal decides to continue with her wedding plan and leave it up to God to find her “bashert”! (destined one)  She books a wedding hall, sends out invitations and buys a wedding dress, as her mother and sister look on dumbfoundedly.  During Michal’s month-long search for a spouse, she goes on a series of disastrous blind dates while dismissing the pleas of her friends and family members that she reconsiders her misguided plan.  As the day of the ceremony grows closer, Michal puts everything on the line to find happiness.
