    SIMCHAS AND SORROWS (Genevieve Adams 2022)

    Seeking a rom com effect, with a New York and Brooklyn setting, Adams wrote, directed, and stars in this semi-autobiographical film while pregnant (as her character's written to be) about an atheist raised Catholic who consents to attend Judaism class with her Jewish fiancée to please his conservative family. Moments focused exclusively on Adams and Thomas McDonell, who plays the fiancée, work quite well; many others are less successful. I missed the light touch of HBO's "High Maintenance," which might have made something juicy out of this theme.

    Already shown last Friday afternoon at the Castro Theater in San Francisco.
