Hart Sharp Prepares to 'Eat'9 May, 2006 By: Jessica Wolf
Hart Sharp Video will release the quirky Passover comedy When Do We Eat? on DVD ($24.99) Aug. 22 in a deal with the independent film's producers, David Garber of Lantern Lane and Pictures From the Fringe.
“It gives me great pleasure to be working with Lantern Lane and Pictures From the Fringe on this totally original project,” said Joe Amodei, Hart Sharp president and founder. “When Do We Eat? illustrates humorous aspects of a modern-day Jewish family and will leave anyone able to relate in one way or another.”
In the movie, a traditional family Passover Seder dinner goes awry when one of the kids in the family slips their strict father an Ecstasy pill.
When Do We Eat? has garnered some buzz during its limited theatrical release, though it was met with rather limp reviews from critics.
The film stars Jack Klugman, Lesley Ann Warren, Ben Feldman and Michael Lerner.
