FJCC Film Series: Serial (Bad) Weddings

7:30PM - 9:30PM  

Flemington Jewish Community Center 5 Sergeantsville Road
Flemington, NJ

Claude Verneuil, a Gaullist notary, and his wife Marie, a Catholic bourgeois, are parents of four daughters: Isabelle, Odile, Ségolè​ne, and Laure. The three eldest are already married to men, each one of a different religion and a different ethnic origin: Isabelle married Rashid Ben Assem, an Algerian Muslim lawyer, Odile married David Benishou, a Sephardi Jew entrepreneur, and ​Ségolè​ne married Chao Ling, a Han Chinese banker. The Verneuils pretend to accept their sons-in-law but have had a hard time hiding their discomfort at accpeting people into the family from outside the community. Snacks will be served.
