Most newlyweds barely make it through the door of their hotel room before crashing from exhaustion, but these two end up spending their first night as a married couple journeying through the streets of Jerusalem. The root of their adventure? The groom’s ex-girlfriend sent him a ring as a wedding gift, which the bride is determined to return without delay. Written and directed by Israeli filmmaker Talya Lavie, who also made Zero Motivation, this hilarious film premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival.
The J is pleased to announce that opening night is underwritten by the newly established Margolis Family Endowment. We want to thank and recognize Judy and Rodney Margolis, Rosalyn and Barry Margolis, and Judy and Ken Margolis for their support and generosity.
