Synopsis:
Inspired from the international smash hit play seen by over a million people, JEWTOPIA is the story is about Christian O'Connell (Sergei) and Adam Lipschitz (Moore) -- two childhood friends who reunite as adults to help each other land the women of their dreams. Chris wants to marry Allison (Hewitt), a Jewish girl, so that he'll never have to make another decision for as long as he lives. Adam is on the verge of getting married to Hannah (Sigler), a woman he is not content with. When Chris enlists Adam's help in pretending to be Jewish so that Allison will date him, cultures collide and chaos ensues!

Director:
JEWTOPIA is the directorial debut of 6 year Malibu resident Bryan Fogel who co-wrote the screenplay, the stage play, and the best-selling book, Jewtopia: The Chosen Book for the Chosen People, with Sam Wolfson. "It's been an incredible journey from what started as a little show in Los Angeles. I believe the film not only captures the outrageous comedy that made the stage play so popular, it also tells the universal story of cultures clashing and families getting in the way of finding true love. I'm thrilled to be having our Los Angeles premiere in the city that I live in and love, Malibu, CA.
