Synopsis

Eighteen-year-old Shira is the youngest daughter of the family and is about to be married off to a very promising young man of the same age. On Purim, her twenty-eight-year-old sister, Esther, dies during childbirth, leaving her husband to care for the child and postponing Shira's promised match. When the girls' mother finds out that Yochay may leave the country with her only grandchild, she proposes a match between Shira and the widower, which leaves Shira to choose between her heart's wish and her family's wish to keep the child with them.

DVD and Blu-ray Releases for September 24th, 2013

September 24th, 2013

If I were to use a single world to describe this week's list of new releases, that world would be Iron Man 3. This film will dominate the DVD and Blu-ray sales chart by such a degree that practically none of the other releases matter. That's not to say there are no other releases that are worth picking up, it's just that they will be crushed on the sales chart. The best release of the week is Modern Family: Season Four, which is a clear contender for Pick of the Week. Unfortunately, I'm still waiting for the screener to arrive. This is also true for a number of new releases this week, but fortunately a late release is able to fill the void. Homeland: Season Two is clearly the best release on this week's list and the Blu-ray is the Pick of the Week. More...

Per Theater Chart: Way Way is Strong Strong

July 9th, 2013

The Way Way Back earned top spot on the per theater chart with an average of $29,094 in nineteen theaters. This suggests a lot of room to expand, while it should reach its first milestone shortly. The overall box office leader, Despicable Me 2 was next with an average of $20,895. Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain was a surprise entrant in the $10,000 club with an average of $11,450 in nearly 900 theaters. The final film in the $10,000 club was Museum Hours with an average of $10,427 in three theaters. More...

Per Theater Chart: We've Seen This Result Before

May 29th, 2013

As expected, Before Midnight led the way on the per theater chart with an average $49,383. This is the third best per theater average so far this year, behind just The Place Beyond the Pines and Spring Breakers. The overall box office leader, Fast and Furious 6, was next with an average of $26,620. Fill the Void was relatively close behind with an average of $19,721 in three theaters. The final film in the $10,000 club was The Hangover 3 with an average of $11,722. More...

See a Limited Release Before the End of the Day

May 24th, 2013

It is a rather short list for limited releases this week, but there is at least one, Before Midnight, that has a really good shot at earning some mainstream success. It is not the only film earning great reviews, but not every film that earns great reviews thrives in limited release and films like Fill the Void and We Steal Secrets will likely find more limited success.
