Growing Up Jewish: Bar Mitzvah

Cinema

Directed by Michael Tuchner | 1976 | UK | 1h15 | Certificate 12A

As part of our Jewish Comedy Festival, join us in the cinema for selection of films and shorts that explore the harsh reality, and hilarity of our awkward teenage years.

A Jewish boy thinks seriously about the meaning of his forthcoming Bar Mitzvah and realises the limitations of his father and other male members of the family. Meanwhile his family prepare for the celebration, preoccupied with the banquet, guest lists, clothes and preparations for the event.

Long regarded as one of Jack Rosenthal's best works, Bar Mitzvah Boy was festooned with accolades upon its TV release in 1976. A rare chance to see this absolute gem of a film on the big screen.
