Let's go to the movies this weekend


Michal, played by Noa Kohler, is fitted in her wedding gown for a wedding that doesn't have a groom yet.

Here's a romantic, feel-good movie about a Jewish woman looking for love with a deadline of 30 days. The wedding is planned, but there is no groom. Will she find him? Will there be a groom on her wedding day? From American-Israeli writer and director Rama Burshtein ("Fill the Void") comes the "The Wedding Plan," a poignant and funny romantic comedy about love, marriage and faith in life's infinite possibilities.

"The Wedding Plan" was filmed in Israel and is in Hebrew with English subtitles. It opens tonight at the Regal Winter Park Village and will run for at least a week, and hopefully be extended.

The movie is about Michal, a 32-year-old Orthodox woman, who 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.

Noa Koler, gives a brilliant performance at Michal, for which she received the Ophir Award (the Israeli version of the Oscar®) for best actress as well as the best actress award at the Haifa Film Festival. The film co-stars popular Israeli actors Amos Tamam (Downtown Precinct), Oz Zehavi (Yossi) and Irit Sheleg (Fill The Void).

The Regal Winter Park Village is located at 510 N Orlando Ave, Winter Park. Showtimes can be found at http://www.regmovies.com/theaters/regal-winter-park-village-stadium
