Come fall under the spell of this magical movie
which received an incredible 11 Ophir (Israeli Oscar)
nominations!
Based on a Moroccan Jewish folktale, My Lovely Sister
is the love-hate story of sisters Rahma and Mary.
Rahma faces quite a few challenges. She is unable to
forgive her sister Mary for marrying an Arab. She's
also convinced her home is haunted by the spirit of
her dead mother, and she even bakes cookies and
leaves them — just in case her ghost-mother gets
hungry. Then there's her husband, who is constantly
telling Rahma how to manage everything.
If you're ready to escape to a world like nothing
you've ever experienced, don't miss this film!

In the midst of World War II, Bernie and Ellis were
lovers. Torn apart by the war, they were each forced
to go into hiding. Before parting, they promised to
write diaries about their experiences.
This true story continues years later when, with no
hope that Bernie is alive, Ellis, still heartbroken,
marries another man.
On Ellis's wedding day she receives a package, from
an unknown woman, that contains Bernie's diary.
Completely overwhelmed, she buries the diary and
moves with her new husband to Palestine. Sixty-five
years later, Ellis's daughter Shula urges her to open
the diary.
