The uneasiness in one’s own culture, it’s always a celebration of comedy and being ashamed of others. Ezra Cohen, in his mid-thirties, is a particularly tough case. He’s a stockbroker, but the thick-eyed financier jokes that his boss expects of him come out so clammily that every conversation turns into a disaster. Only Yom Kippur is worse, with parents and sister in the synagogue. The elders in the Jewish community seem crazy to him, and the young women with whom his shame-free mother wants to set him up trigger escape reflexes in him.
