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

May 9, 2014 $12.00

MASSACHUSETTS PREMIERE – Chinatown meets Alice In Wonderland in this fantastical noir farce from Avi Nesher (Turn Left at the End of the World, NCJF2005; The Matchmaker, NCJF2011), about a graffiti artist, private investigator, and femme fatale who join forces to rescue an enigmatic rabbi caught in a labyrinthine conspiracy in Jerusalem’s weird criminal-religious underworld. With a tip of the hat to the Coen brothers, Woody Allen, and Michael Chabon, The Wonders is filled with quirks, red herrings, and cartoons that come to life. “One of the greatest Israeli movies ever.” –Walla “A brilliant, elegant, very original mystery.” –Jerusalem Post “A Great Ride – witty and highly entertaining.” –Ynet
