Film Review: SIXTY SIX

Click here to download my JUF News review as a pdf.



     FF2 Haiku: “Tru-ish” story of director Weiland’s Bar Mitzvah, ironically scheduled on the same day that Britain became “World Cup” soccer champs in 1966. Jan loved the “Velt mit Veltelekh” (“World within Worlds”) peek into Jewish London circa mid-60s, but Rich thought it dragged a bit in the middle.

    It was a lot of fun. My British friends especially enjoyed it.

    The boy actor was excellent. Actually all the actors were great.

    I would highly recommend it.

    My son and his girlfriend also enjoyed it…so young and old alike had a good time.

    My Hadassah Khavera “Elaine” asked me to post this comment for her: SIXTY SIX was funny, sweet, touching and had an innocence missing in so many of our “modern” movies. Bernie, the Bar Mitzvah boy, would make any parent proud (beautiful job on his havtorah as a bonus). It had a universal theme that everyone can enjoy. Hope the movie does fabulously well.

    Really enjoyed the movie. Good acting, sometimes over the top, but that’s the way it should be. Remember, it’s ‘true-ish’.
    And yes, you will laugh and be sad at the same time. Just like real life.
    Highly recommended.
