Wedding Doll Review - AVClub

AVClub: An artfully made drama with a suffocatingly negative view of humanity, the Israeli feature Wedding Doll describes a particularly circumscribed existence amid the lonely wastes of the Negev desert. Hagit (Moran Rosenblatt), an intellectually disabled 24-year-old who lives with her mother Sara (Assi Levy), dreams of a life of her own. But the daughter can’t always control her feelings of anger and disappointment, much less go outside without getting rattled by the taunts of kids half her age. So it’s at least understandable why her mother, who refuses to consider the assisted-living option for her child, has grown overprotective.

The story is too old to be commented.
