Less Than Kosher
At 20, Viv was a promising young singer. At 30, her failing music career has forced her back into her mother’s basement. But when this self proclaimed Bad Jew lands ass-backwards into a job as a Cantor at her family’s synagogue, she’s thrown into a wild ride of illicit affairs, drug trips, tense family drama, self discovery and some serious Jewish bops.
WHY WE LIKE THIS FILM: A favorite in the festival because it brings redemption like a dessert of the sweetest kind after a wonderfully tasty meal. An unexpected wild ride with a crazy story and amazing music. B”tei Avon ( bon appetit)—leave room! Winner of the Best Film at the Toronto Jewish Film Festival 2023.
