Laura Adler's Last Love Affair

Director - Avram Heffner

1990, 94 min. Format: Beta


Cast: Rita Zohar, Shulamit Adar, Menashe Warshavski


It is surprising to learn that Yiddish live theater still exists even in Israel. In the story, the formerly lively theatrical form is barely sustained by a few aging aficionados of the form, along with the support of its loyal but chronologically challenged (aging) audiences. The big star of one of these troupes is a woman named Laura Adler (Rita Zohar) (the Adler name is doubt homage to the great Yiddish theatrical family). She is attractive and middle-aged, and is quite content to spend her days performing in this obscure theatrical backwater. One day, however, she learns that she is being considered for a part in a major U.S. film, and, while she is absorbing that news, she has a brief affair with a young man. Later, when she learns that she has terminal cancer, she decides to spend her remaining days onstage with her theatrical friends and family.
