her son's bar mitzvah after a ten-year absence.
"This schmaltzy [musical] melodrama pays tribute to religious and
theatrical traditions while surprisingly bursting their bonds in moments
of modernist cinematic inspiration. As the plot lurches and
twists...lightning bolts of cinematic revelation suggest the pliable,
accessible modernism of the cinema in even the most constraining of
circumstances." New Yorker (Dec. 2009)
