Synopsis

Paradise Grove is the first film by award-winning TV and theatre director Charles Harris. A new British Independent movie, a bittersweet coming-of-age story set in a Jewish old age home in North London, it is also, remarkably, the first contemporary Jewish movie to be made in the UK for ten years.

Paradise Grove is a film with a distinctive and unusual voice. Starting with deceptively gentle comedy, it woos us with a colourful parade of sharply observed characters, each with their own quirks and eccentricities, before building to a moving climax with a strong emotional punch.
