Women Filmmakers Forum: Arranged
1:30- Women Filmmakers Forum Film: Arranged Directors: Diane Crespo & Stefan C. Shaefer Country: USA 2007 - Feature Duration: 90 min. Language: English.
Two young women, one an Orthodox Jew, the other Muslim meet and become friends as first-year teachers at a public school in Brooklyn. Over the course of the year they learn they share much in common, not least of which is that they are both going through arranged marriages. A wonderful little comedy with performances so natural it might be mistaken it for a documentary. For anyone interested in living in a globalized world.
