Product Description

22-year-old Sarabeth Cohen (Marla Sokoloff), a self-described "feminist artist," talks us through the travails of her Jewish-American family and her own coming of age. The youngest of three daughters, Sarabeth chafes against a mother defined by her commitment to separating meat from milk and a father (Ronald Guttman) preoccupied with Holocaust memories. In response, Sarabeth cultivates a rebellious attitude and a sweet-faced Roman Catholic boyfriend (Rob McElhenney). But her foray into Gentile-land is marred by social faux pas A? she brings wine to a barbecue A? and overheard anti-Semitic comments. Maybe Mom's knishes aren't so bad, after all.

Review

... a wonderfully honest coming of age film... Ronald Guttman and Tovah Feldshuh shine as the thoughtful mother and father... this kind of storytelling is refreshing. --Jonathan Hickman, einsiders.com

....Debra Kirschner brings a welcome lightness and honesty to her portrait of a loving family stuck between tradition and modernity.... --Rajendra Roy, Director of Programming

....exudes the true warmth and pain of trials within the family, with a hilarious edge.... --Ilana Kramer, Lilith Magazine

I wanted to like this movie and I did like many of the actresses. The plot left a lot to be desired, however. What I liked most was seeing the paintings that Sarabeth created. What I liked least was an ending that left a lot dangling. (spoiler alert) I'm not sure what the director was trying to accomplish with this movie--if she wanted to show Sarabeth's growing independence, the point of that was rather blunted by a too-perfect love interest, with no great answers as to why she was giving him up or why she couldn't have both man & career. In fact, the story of Sarabeth's lesbian sister overshadows Sarabeth's own story & you are left wondering whether the sister's love story works out, whatever happened to the female priest she was interested in, etc. And not sure why the father's sickness was brought up--does he get to see his grandkids or does he die first? Why bring it up if you're not going to finish the story? And what happens to the other sister? Do they find the errant brother & bring him to justice? Live in the parents' house forever? Does she have her baby ok? Don't even get me started on the ending, where Sarabeth gets to the tollbooth & just turns around... OK, symbolic or whatever, everything is so centered on what is going on in her head, that it makes an incredibly dull and anticlimatic ending. My husband turned to me & said, "is that it?" Um, yeah. Not sure what the other reviewers saw in this film, but I just found it disappointing.

This is another cute movie that stars the adorable Marla Sokoloff - it makes no sense to me why this actress isn't more famous.
The movie isn't brilliant, but it's sweet, realistic and funny. It has some great characters in it, good acting and let's Marla shine a little.
I'd recommend this if you're a fan or if you want to see a movie about a Jewish family and their interconnected relationships.

To be honest, the only reason i bought this was because Idina Menzel was in it but the movie was okay. I found some little parts funny. The ending sucked.

This is a wonderful film. A refreshing, bright and approachable tale about how a young woman's life after college. It shows life from Sarabeth's point of view; she's not always right, she's sometimes annoying and she makes mistakes. But she is real.
This is a great story that hasn't been seen before but still feels familiar. A gem! :)

Marla Sokoloff does a great job with this coming of age film. I love Idina Menzel as the big sister and, of course Tovah Feldshuh is the quintessential mom. I have watched this movie a bunch of times, and it is one I will keep on hand for a pick-me-up. You cant lose with this one!

I saw this movie at the Sarasota Film Festival the year it opened. It was my favorite of the fest (in spite of my own film showing there). I am so happy it's now on DVD. The acting was amazing ... I loved the story and the director did a spectacular job. We had a movie screening of it at my home once I bought it...everyone thoroughly enjoyed the story and loved the way the Jewish faith weaved throughout the film...truly contemporary tale of love. I highly...correction...WE highly recommend this film!The Tollbooth
