Late Marriage

Following in 2002's long parade of ethnic comedy/drama/romance films about impending nuptials (American Chai, Maryam, Monsoon Wedding, My Big Fat, Greek Wedding, Son of the Bride) is this Israeli effort. Zaza is a 32-year-old bachelor whose parents are pressuring him to get married. According to custom, he must enter into an arranged marriage with a young, wealthy virgin. But he's already in love with a divorced thirtysomething with her own child. What's a protagonist to do? Despite the growing familiarity of this genre, Late Marriage is a quiet and emotional gem. In Georgian and Hebrew with English subtitles. 100 minutes
