Movie Info

At 32, Michal (Noa Kooler), an Orthodox Jewish woman, is finally looking forward to the comfort and security of marriage, when she is blindsided by her fiancé's decision to call off the wedding with only a month's notice. Unwilling to return to lonely single life, Michal decides to put her trust in fate and continue with her wedding plans, believing Mr. Right will appear by her chosen date. Confident she will find a match made in heaven, she books a venue, sends out invitations and buys a wedding dress, as her skeptical mother and sister look on with trepidation. During Michal's month-long search for a spouse, she enlists the help of two different matchmakers, goes on a series of disastrous blind dates and finds an unexpected connection with a charming but utterly unsuitable pop star (Oz Zehavi) - all while dismissing pleas by concerned friends and family members that she reconsider her risky plan. As the day of the ceremony grows closer and no suitor appears, Michal puts everything on the line to find happiness.

Critic Reviews for The Wedding Plan

All Critics (71) | Top Critics (20)

An engaging (and surprisingly entertaining) examination, not of belief, but of a believer, a struggling soul who more often than not blocks her own path to paradise.

The film's structural shortcomings will matter less to most viewers than the personality of the central character, Michal.

May 25, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

This is a film of subtle humor and universal appeal. Just don't expect a carefree romp.

You've probably never seen a romantic comedy like "The Wedding Plan."

May 19, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Unexpectedly rich, "The Wedding Plan" uses the frame of an apparent romantic comedy as a vehicle to study religious faith, loneliness, culture and inner turmoil.

Once this measured film kicks in, predictability falls away, sending Michal on a twisty, awkward, darkly humorous and emotionally raw march toward the chuppah.

Audience Reviews for The Wedding Plan

Perhaps the title should have been "My Not So Big Hebrew Wedding Without a Groom." A brutally honest look at loneliness and the pressure to find the person who you will spend the rest of one's life with. With the most close-up shot I have ever seen in a movie the lead character played by Noa Kooler shows so much emotions with her mouth and eyes than most actors with their entire body. Mavel tov indeed! (5-26-17)
