More Than I Deserve

December 3, 2023 @ 3:00 pm

Playing in the CCA Cinema

Part of the Santa Fe Jewish Film Festival

Nominated for seven Israeli Academy Awards. As new immigrants from Ukraine, frazzled single mother Tamara works nights and sleeps during the day while her 12-year-old, Pinchas, is mostly alone and does all the shopping and cooking.

When Pinchas decides he wants a bar mitzvah, he defies his mother and turns to his religious neighbor for help. The two form a strong father-son bond and before long, Tamara, too, finds that the unmarried Orthodox man is affecting her life in unexpected ways—but things get complicated when his rabbi pressures him to marry a woman from their own community.

A finely textured coming-of-age drama that shines a light on immigrant life in Israel.
