“Tommy Lang’s Peter the Third should make John Madden, director of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, weep” (Vancouver Jewish Film Festival). A warm, cross-generational comedy guaranteed to make you smile, as a band of cantankerous Romanian-born retirees spend their days gossiping and complaining at their local café in Tel Aviv. Determined to better his financial situation, Peter, a 65-year-old actor, decides to run for the Israeli parliament in order to be eligible for a parliament member’s pension. Together with Alona, a down-on-her-luck waitress, he sets up the Widows and Widowers Party. This unlikely alliance sends each of them on a personal journey that offers them hope for new beginnings.
