National Center for Jewish Film’s Jewishfilm.2014 – “Mamele”

May 11, 2014 $12.00 0

NEW ENGLAND PREMIERE – This musical comedy drama belongs to Molly Picon, “Queen of the Yiddish Musical,” who shines as Mamele (little mother), the dutiful daughter keeping her family intact. She’s so busy cooking, cleaning, and matchmaking for her brothers and sisters that she has little time for herself, until she discovers the violinist across the courtyard!  “A sparkling gem…. Picon is so delicious and quirky, you want to give her a knip in bekl (pinch on her cheek).” –Jewish Daily Forward
