THE WEDDING PLAN: CANADIAN THEATRICAL RELEASE STARTS MAY 12!
THE WEDDING PLAN, directed by critically acclaimed Rama Burshtein (Fill The Void) is making its Canadian theatrical debut in select cities across Canada on Friday, May 12th. The film stars Israel's biggest heartthrob Oz Zehavi, Ophir Award (Isreal's version of the Oscars®) winner Noa Kooler, and Israeli Television Award winner Amos Taman.
Synopsis: At 32, Michal is finally looking forward to the comfort and security of marriage, when she is blindsided by her fiancé’s decision to call off the wedding with only a month’s notice. Unwilling to return to lonely single life, Michal decides to put her trust in fate and continue with her wedding plans, believing Mr. Right will appear by her chosen date. Confident she will find a match made in heaven, she books a venue, sends out invitations and buys a wedding dress, as her skeptical mother and sister look on with trepidation.
During Michal’s month-long search for a spouse, she enlists the help of two different matchmakers, goes on a series of disastrous blind dates and finds an unexpected connection with a charming but utterly unsuitable pop star — all while dismissing pleas by concerned friends and family members that she reconsider her risky plan. As the day of the ceremony grows closer and no suitor appears, Michal puts everything on the line to find happiness.
The second film from American-Israeli writer and director Rama Burshtein (Fill the Void), The Wedding Plan is a poignant and funny romantic comedy about love, marriage and faith in life’s infinite possibilities. A nominee for Best Film at the 2016 Venice Film Festival, the film stars Noa Kooler, Amos Tamam, Oz Zehavi, Irit Sheleg, Ronny Merhavi, Dafi Alpern, Karin Serrouya, Erez Drigues, Oded Leopold, Udi Persi and Jonathan Rozen.
