Handle With Care

Rated 4.0

It's Christmas Eve and grandma's body is missing—and has to be found in 24 hours so her granddaughter can ship it back to Israel for a proper Jewish burial. The story here is presented in both English and Hebrew dialogue. This light romantic comedy is filled with irrational coincidences, improbable plot lines and unlikely love connections. But in the end, it works because it gives us less schmaltz and more heart. Th, Fr 8pm, Sa 5 and 9pm, Tu 6:30pm, W 2pm and 6:30pm Through 1/3. $23-$35.
