Oy Vey My Son is Gay
30 August 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I saw the world premiere at the World Film Festival(FFM) in Montreal. The film is hilarious, and will appeal to a wide range of communities - gays, Jews (of course!), Italians (a surprise), mothers who lay awake at night worrying about their unmarried sons, etc. The film explores a sensitive issue with humour and passion. The acting is quite good, and the cinematography is colourful. I liked the pace of this film - it definitely does not plod along! Filmed in Seattle (of all places), the setting is quintessential NYC. I found the ending a bit strange and perhaps out of sync with the rest of the film. I definitely recommend this film, and hope it gets a commercial release.
