TUESDAY

Basically My Big Fat Greek Wedding for Jewish Londoners, Suzie Gold comes from one of the writers of Da Ali G Show but is nowhere near so edgy. Summer Phoenix, of all people, plays Suzie, who’s being steered toward marrying Jewish catering-firm heir Anthony Silver when she meets Darren, a gentile dreamboat with a blessedly nonjudgmental family. But can Suzie wed Darren, or should he be only a temporary break from her high-pitched friends and relatives (none of whom she actually seems to like, by the way, save for sharp-tongued Nana)? Director and co-writer Ric Cantor doesn’t trifle with subtlety in plot, dialogue, or music. Not only does he score one big moment to Neil Diamond’s “Girl, You’ll Be a Woman Soon”—gold, silver, and diamond, innit?—but he also offers the tiniest of variations on the desperate-dash-to-true-love-while-wearing-wedding-gown scene. The film screens at 7:30 p.m. at the Washington Jewish Community Center’s Aaron and Cecile Goldman Theater, 1529 16th St. NW. $7.50. (202) 777-3215. (Mark Jenkins)
