Hebrew with English subtitles

32 and disillusioned with the singles marketplace, spirited bride-to-be Michal is eager for the comfort and companionship of marriage. Then her fiancé dumps her just one month before their wedding. Devastated but undeterred, she decides to keep her wedding date, leaving it to fate to provide a suitable groom. With invitations sent, the venue booked, the clock counting down to the big day, and pressure from her family mounting, Michal enlists two matchmakers to help her find Mr. Right. After a series of comically mismatched dates — including one with a charming but utterly unsuitable pop star — and many soul-bearing conversations with her sisters, Michal finds she has chemistry with someone she never expected. – Tribeca Film Festival

 

Reviews

Rama Burshtein has crafted a film that’s poignant and funny, smart and unexpected. Burshtein takes love and happiness very seriously. The Wedding Plan, with its beautiful flow between comedy and sentiment, celebrates the pursuit of love, its absurdity, intensity, and power.
