Oy Vey! My Son Is Gay!

Directed by Evgeny Afineevsky

USA | 90 minutes | 2009

A romantic, heartwarming and inspirational mainstream family comedy of errors featuring a Jewish family who struggles coming to terms with their son's non-Jewish and gay boyfriend. Every Friday night, the Hirsch family invites another "perfect" girl to Shabbat dinner in the hopes that their son will marry a nice Jewish girl. This is put to an end when their son finally reveals that he is already seeing someone, and his parents can't wait to meet the lucky lady — except she is actually a guy. When the gay couple adopts a child and it makes headline news, their families come to defend them and realize how much they love them.
