Charleston Jewish Filmfest presents
PS 23 - Film Screening: "Karaoke"
a part of the Piccolo Spoleto Festival
Thu, Jun 1 at 6:30pm
Join Charleston Jewish Filmfest for a one-night-only film screening of the Israeli movie "Karaoke."
Movie Description: An offbeat, comedic journey that delights and surprises, Karaoke follows Tova and Meir, a standard aging couple with 46 years of marriage and two grown daughters. They live a comfortable life, with Meir currently on sabbatical from his academic professorship, and Tova running a boutique shop. Their lives get a jolt of excitement from their neighbor from above, Itzik, who invites them to his penthouse for karaoke nights. Tova and Meir fall hard for Itzik’s energetic lifestyle. They enter into a competition amongst their other neighbors and soon themselves, trying to win Itzik’s attention.
