THINKFilm Bites "Eat" for the North America

THINKFilm has picked up all North American theatrical rights to Nina Davidovich and Salvador Litvak's "When Do We Eat?", which the company calls "the first Passover comedy."  The film, starring Ben Feldman ("Perfect Man"), Michael Lerner ("Barton Fink"), Jack Klugman ("Twelve Angry Men") and Lesley Ann Warren ("Desperate Housewives"), will be released April 7th to coincide with the Passover celebration. The film is the story of a tough-love dad (Lerner) has to deal with hosting his father (Klugman) who never unpacks, his wife (Warren), who is intent on creating the perfect Seder, and his children who go out of their way to make the night an adventure. When one of the kids slips Dad a tab of ecstasy, his visions turn him into a modern-day Moses intent on leading this hungry group to the promised land of family forgiveness. THINKFilm's Daniel Katz, VP of acquisitions and Randy Manis, SVP of acquisitions and business affairs, negotiated the deal, with David L. Garber of Lantern Lane Entertainment and Stephanie Adwar of Furgang & Adwar on behalf of the filmmakers. [Brian Brooks]

    Hurray.. I am very happy that WHEN DO WE EAT found a distributor. I saw a copy of the film for consideration for SchmoozeDance 2006, and found it funny and slightly insightful. It is well acted and cast. So.. what better way to celebrate the exodus from Egypt thousands of years ago, than to make an exodus from the post seder to a theater to see this one.
