PJFF Film: “Moos”

November 17, 2016 @ 7:30 pm

$13

Trapped between wanting to care for her grieving father and having a life of her own, Moos desperately wants to become a theater star. But instead of rehearsing curtain calls, Moos spends her days singing into her steam iron while helping out with the family textile business. That is, until Sam, her childhood best friend, returns home from serving in the Israeli army.

With Sam in need of a place to work, Moos finally has the chance to break free from familial demands and to apply to university, where she plans to study musical theater and advance her singing career. The trouble is, without prior professional training, Moos is far from making the cut. With her best-laid plans at a standstill, two illicit love affairs on the horizon and escalating tension at home, Moos’ life has never been this complicated or this exciting.

Guest Speaker: Jip Smit, one of the actors in the film

Special Event: Post-film happy hour at The Little Lion Restaurant (243 Chestnut Street, upstairs space) with appetizer and drink specials
