Storyline

When Do We Eat? is the story of the "world's fastest Passover Seder" gone horribly awry. It's about an old school dad who's as tough on his sons as his father is on him. On this night, however, one of the boys slips Dad a dose of special, hallucinogenic Ecstasy in order "to give him a new perspective." Meanwhile, Mom brings a handsome stranger to dinner and the kids take sides. By the end of the night, however, Dad's visions turn him into a modern day Moses intent on leading this hungry group to the promised land of family forgiveness. Of course they're all so stubborn, it would be easier to part the Red Sea. Written by THINKFilm

Great Jewish movie for non-Jews!
25 March 2005 | by (France) – See all my reviews

The central themes are universal (dysfunctional family, holidays gone wrong), but the story unfolds in the unique setting of a passover dinner--which I believe is a movie first. The filmmakers wisely put a non-Jew at the table to make us non-Jews feel at home. The characters are well-developed and convincing--a real feat in a story about a family that includes a sex surrogate, an autistic teen, a Hasidic Jew, a lesbian half-sister, and a stoner. Fantastic cast. Michael Lerner is wonderful as the father. He plays a wide emotional range very convincingly. Why hasn't this guy been in more great roles? This film really gives him a chance to shine. Ben Feldman, Cynda Williams and Meredith Scott Lynn also give great performances. Stunning visual effects and a great soundtrack.
