Oy Vey! My Son is Gay!!
Evgeny Afineevsky (USA, 2009, 91 min.)

Shirley Hirsch wants what every Jewish mother wants: her son, Nelson, to settle down with a nice, Jewish girl. Over and over, Shirley (My Big Fat Greek Wedding's Lainie Kazan) invites a new potential wife to Shabbat dinner. Tired of uncomfortable meals, Nelson informs his mother and his father that the matchmaking can stop, as he's already serious about someone. But when he shows up at a family wedding with his rainbow yarmulke-wearing boyfriend instead of a woman, all hell breaks loose. With an all-star cast that includes Bruce Vilanch and Vincent Pastore from The Sopranos, Oy Vey! explores the boundaries of unconditional family love.
