20th Annual New Jersey Jewish Film Festival
For the safety and health of our community, it has become necessary to postpone our 20th Annual New Jersey Jewish Film Festival set to begin on Thursday, March 19. We will reschedule the films when we know we can do so safely. We expect that the modified festival will include screenings throughout the summer, September and October. All purchased tickets will be exchangeable once the new dates are confirmed.
Please contact Sarah Diamond with any questions: (973) 929-2938 or [email protected]

Scott, a struggling stand-up comedian (Ben Schwartz), moves back home to Long Island after four unsuccessful years of trying to make it in LA. On a night out, he meets a charming, eccentric, alcoholic dermatologist, Marty (Billy Crystal), who has his own burden of regrets. Through this unlikely friendship, they help each other find healing and the confidence to face the “failures” in their lives.
