LIFE IS RICH is a real life comedy about Bonnie Rich, a filmmaker and Jewish mom on a mission—to persuade her millennial daughters to raise her unborn grandchildren Jewish.
While her daughters see little need for Jewish ritual that doesn’t involve food, Bonnie wants them to see Judaism as more than matzo ball soup. So she lures her daughters into Jewish sing-alongs and drags them to meet with rabbis. In the process, Bonnie finds herself contemplating her own connection with her faith and questions whether she will be successful in pulling the family closer to Judaism.
“Bonnie Rich tackles some of our time’s most difficult questions—on culture, religion, and heritage—with humor and fearlessness. She makes me think while I’m laughing at her gentle humor.”
Arch Campbell, Long-time Washington, DC movie reviewer
