Director — Rama Burshtein
“Or, My Big Weird Jewish Wedding.” – TimeOut
“Unique, idiosyncratic and spiritual.” – LA Times
“A brightly colored, often zany crowdpleaser… an open-hearted, humane film.” – NPR
Exhausted by single life at 32, spirited bride-to-be Michal (Noa Koler) is eager for the comfort and companionship of marriage. When her fiancé dumps her one month before their wedding she is devastated but undeterred, and decides to keep her wedding date, leaving it to fate – and God – to provide a suitable Mr Right.
Trailblazing writer-director Rama Burshtein (Fill the Void) returns to the cloistered Orthodox community she knows intimately with this funny and poignant screwball romantic comedy. When it comes to finding love, it’s equal parts luck, determination, and blind faith.
Winner Best Screenplay and Best Actress (Noa Kolar) at the 2016 Ophir Awards (Israeli Oscars), and a US box office hit, The Wedding Plan premiered at the 2016 Venice Film Festival.
