New England Premiere of Film “Stay With Us”

Top Pick August 14, 2023 Cambridge $12.00
"Stay With Us" (Promotional still)

Belmont World Film presents the New England premiere of “Stay With Us.” It’s by and about Gad Elmaleh, named France’s funniest comedian. In the film, and in real life, he’s intent on converting from Judaism to Catholicism when he returns to Paris and pays a visit to his Moroccan-born Jewish parents. The film is funny, thoughtful and even features his real-life parents, sister and cousin, who, of course, have a lot to say about his decision. Two rabbis even weigh in. And it even depicts Catholicism well, so it’s very even-handed.

Rabbi (and filmmaker) Raysh Weiss from Temple Israel in Natick and Eugene Pogany, author of a book about his father’s family’s conversion to Catholicism (and partial conversion back to Judaism) during World War II, will lead a discussion immediately following the screening.
