Matchmaking

This film will take place at the Orlando Science Center Cinedome.

Endlessly witty, visually rapturous, and sweetly romantic, Matchmaking is a Romeo and Juliet-like saga (sans the tragedy!) of two young, eligible ultra-Orthodox singles looking for a match. Moti (Amit Rahav from the Netflix international hit Unorthodox) spots Nechama (Liana Ayoun in a breakthrough performance), his sister’s friend, and is instantly smitten, but isn’t allowed to date the charming, beautiful young woman because she doesn’t come from an Ashkenazi (European origin) family like his own, but rather comes from a Mizrahi (Middle Eastern origin) family. Over the course of time, Moti is sent on a whirlwind of dates with beautiful girls in the Orthodox community, but against everything he knows, he finds he must pursue his one true love, Nechama. A joyous new tale about tolerance and love from the director of A Matter of Size (CFJFF 2009), Matchmaking is Israel’s biggest box office hit of the year and is full of hijinks, jokes, and slapstick humor, along with plenty of one-liners about spicy salads and noodle kugels, with a heavy dose of Yiddish sprinkled into the Hebrew script.
