A little jewel!
24 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This being the director's first full length film, I was concerned about the quality. I shouldn't have been. Great acting, fun plot and wonderful characters. I enjoyed it from beginning to end!

The only thing I would have liked to see was more of the main male character. Very handsome and sexy but there were basically no bod shots of him.

I also appreciated the Jewish humor and small little details added to the film. I'd probably watch it again just to explore some of the details further.

Hopefully this film will get a broader release. I saw it at a special showing. Don't miss this little jewel.
