Product Overview

Joy is a heartbreakingly unforgettable character with a dysfunctional family. Her mom nags her to lose weight and find a husband; her uptight brother loses his job, but refuses to face reality; her dad is handicapped, with a weak bladder. Joy has been exploited by her boss and by her married boyfriend. Just when her life seems on a one way course to nowhere, Joy finds a glimmer of hope when she is accepted for a TV reality show.

Reviews
ReviewSource Variety
Review Documentary filmmaker Julie Shles, whose first fiction feature "Pick a Card" enjoyed marginal international success, returns seven years later with "Joy," an off-kilter curio about a daughter's attempt to rescue her dysfunctional family through televised intervention. Pic recalls Percy Adlon's Marianne Sagebrecht-starring vehicles ("Sugarbaby," "Baghdad Cafe") in its affectionate attitude toward its overweight, 35-year-old heroine, Simcha. Actress Sigalit Fuchs infuses Simcha with an irresistibe wide-eyed vulnerability. With a vertically challenged mime as a love interest, the film fairly courts criticism for excessive whimsicality...Though the characters' stories seem over-the-top on paper, they form a crazy-quilt of controlled if variegated tones...Tech credits are first-rate, Itzik Portal's photography of Tel Aviv locations astutely contextualizing Shles' sometimes candy-colored fable...
