August 31, 2018
This lack of rise and fall causes the progress of the story to dwindle and remain mostly stagnant. All of these things unfortunately hinder an otherwise good central mother/daughter relationship.
August 14, 2018
While the film itself isn't heavy on plot, the scenes shared between its lead actors, Moran Rosenblatt and Assi Levy, are what keep the film engaging.
August 6, 2018
Gilady has managed to trim the fat and delivers a sleek and concise coming-of-age love story that is far more unique than others of recent production.
January 2, 2018
Good looking as the movie is-and good looking as Rosenblatt is, with an inconquerable grin reminiscent of the young Travolta's-Wedding Doll inevitably calls up memories of a certain speech by Robert Downey, Jr. in Tropic Thunder.
September 22, 2017
Writer-director Nitzan Giladi has fashioned a showcase for two excellent performances, matched by other performers in smaller roles.
August 25, 2016
Wedding Doll offers a sensitive portrayal of Hagit finding small and hard-earned victories along the way, and the acting, especially by Rosenblatt and Levy, is spot-on.
August 10, 2016
'Wedding Doll' is worth a walk down the theater aisle.
July 6, 2016
"Wedding Doll" is an affecting, offbeat romance and a coming-of-age tale of a mentally impaired woman who rises above cruelty, prejudice and an overprotective mom.
June 30, 2016
Writer-director Nitzan Giladi understands the myriad reactions of "normal" people to the developmentally disabled but betrays his heroine with a condescending scene in which she dons a bridal gown made of toilet paper rolls.
June 30, 2016
Wedding Doll ultimately lives and dies on Rosenblatt's open, vulnerable performance in a tricky role, and she makes you feel Hagit's every joy and pain as she navigates a world that proves to be far less sunny and welcoming than her smile.
June 9, 2016
Though Wedding Doll sounds like another formulaic Hollywood romance, the intimate Israeli drama is a visually ravishing if imperfect window into a young woman's struggle for independence.
April 15, 2016
The integrity of the filmmaking and the luminosity of Rosenblatt's performance are undeniable. And I suppose the fact that I was affected as I was by "Wedding Doll" is testimony to its emotional effectiveness.
April 15, 2016
Lead actress Morgan Rosenblatt... portrays the sunny, naive Hagit with a sense of a fully formed and detailed inner life, filled with dreams and determination.
April 15, 2016
Rosenblatt is engrossing and charming as Hagit, a worker in a toilet paper factory who creates exquisite dolls from the materials there.
April 14, 2016
Ms. Rosenblatt keeps Hagit's inner light aflame, despite the man-centric motivations Mr. Gilady has saddled the character with, and Ms. Levy is very impressive as a self-sacrificing parent ...
April 14, 2016
Wedding Doll may be a difficult film to accept at face value, but it's an even more difficult one to dislike.
April 14, 2016
Two compelling performances anchor the Israeli drama Wedding Doll.
April 14, 2016
A thoughtful and impressively performed Israeli film about a cheerful but mentally challenged young woman whose professional and personal ambitions are out of reach.
April 14, 2016
In spite of all Wedding Doll's strengths, its scenario comes to seem a little unseemly: Giladi establishes Hagit's hopes and dreams mostly just to show the terrible ways that they're dashed.
April 7, 2016
Every time it starts to find fertile emotional ground, it can't help but become distracted and search for another surface.
