As part of its Cinemagogue film series, Temple Concord shows the sweet and hilarious fusion of cheerful romantic comedy, Jewish family drama and French bedroom farce, “Let My People Go!” on Saturday, April 19, 7 pm.
The prize-winning film follows the toil and daydreams of the lovelorn Reuben, a French-Jewish gay mailman living in fairytale Finland with his gorgeous Nordic boyfriend. Immediately before Passover, a series of mishaps and a lover’s quarrel exiles the heartbroken Reuben back to Paris and his wacky family.
“Let My People Go!” is directed by award-winning Frenchman Michael Buch and celebrates, as well as upends Jewish and gay stereotypes with wit, gusto and style to spare. The result is deeply heartwarming, fabulously kitschy and hysterically funny.
Admission is free and open to the public. Donations are welcome. For more details, contact Temple Concord at 315-475-9952 or email email@example.com.
