February in South Florida isn't just sun, sand, and lectures on Jewish humor. It's also time for Jewish Film Festivals, and we've been doing our fair share of attending premieres of new Jewish films from all over the world.
Dramas and films with Israel and Holocaust themes are well represented, but we're partial to comedies and we saw one today that we just have to share with you. It's titled Dough and we rate it a must see for laughs and Yiddishe nachas.
Jonathan Pryce (Miss Saigon, Evita, Pirates of the Caribbean, Game of Thrones) and Pauline Collins (Shirley Valentine) star in this hilarious new comedy that shows you don't have to be baked to make some Dough!
Curmudgeonly widower Nat Dayan (Jonathan Pryce) clings to his way of life as a Kosher bakery shop owner in London’s East End. Understaffed, Nat reluctantly enlists the help of teenager Ayyash (Jerome Holder), who has a secret side gig selling marijuana to help his immigrant mother make ends meet.
When Ayyash accidentally drops his stash into the mixing dough, the challah starts flying off the shelves and an unlikely friendship forms between the old Jewish baker and his young Muslim apprentice. Dough is a warmhearted and humorous story about overcoming prejudice and finding redemption in unexpected places.
You're lucky if you'll be in South Florida this month, because Dough starts playing on February 12 in theaters from Miami to Lake Worth as follows:
Boca Raton - Living Room Theaters FAU
Boca Raton - Regal Shadowood 16
Delray Beach - Movies of Delray
Lake Worth - Movies of Lake Worth

We hope you enjoy the trailer below and attend a showing if you're in Florida. Otherwise you'll just have to wait until it comes to theaters nationwide this spring.
