Film: The Cakemaker

  • Congregation Kol Ami 1008 West Water Street Elmira, NY 14905 (map)

The JCF’s September film will be  The Cakemaker. It centers on a gay German baker who, after his married Israeli lover is killed in a car accident, travels to Israel and covertly becomes part of his lover’s widow’s life. She runs a small café, for which he starts baking. Although not fully kosher, his delicious cakes turn the place into a city attraction. Finding himself involved in Anat's life in a way far beyond his anticipation, he stretches his lie to a point of no return.

Although the film is not rated in the U.S., Canada rated it as suitable for ages 14 and older, and Australia rated it for mature audiences.
