Read Stephen Sporer’s Daily Planet review of Max Minsky and Me
Director: ANNA JUSTICE
Nelly Sue Edelmeister is a brainy thirteen-year-old Berlin school girl who aspires to be an astronomist. Nelly is terrible at sports, but she learns that there is a spot on the basketball team, and that the team will go to Luxemburg and meet the young Prince Edouard (also a fan of astronomy).
Meet basketball ace Max Minsky, 15, Nelly’s last hope for making the team. Meanwhile, Mom is pushing Nelly to do the bat mitzvah thing, and her parents are bickering day and night, and talking about splitting up. Max Minsky and Me is a dramatic comedy about friendship and family, royals and klutzes, and one girl’s complicated but clear triumph. Recommended for age 10+
