Seventh Annual Jewish Film Festival Closing Night: The Yankles
Charlie, a washed-up former pro baseball player, is sentenced to community service following a drunk driving conviction. The only group willing to give him a second chance at rebuilding his reputation and career is a desperate bunch of Yeshiva students who want to start their own baseball team. Charlie strives to lead "The Yankles" to victory and attempts to mend fences with those he has wronged in this sensitive comedy about overcoming bigotry and self-doubt.
A reception will follow the screening, featuring wine courtesy of Aroma Classique and Fleischer Wines.
