Salute to the 21st Anniversary of the San Diego Jewish Film Festival

THE YANKLES

The Cinema Society of San Diego is proud to salute the San Diego Jewish Film Festival, which celebrates its 21ST Anniversary this year. For the celebration, we are pleased to be presenting one of the many delightful films shown over their 12-day celebration.

Whoever heard of an ultra Orthodox baseball team? That's what The Yankles delivers. Take Charlie, a recently out of prison, washed-up baseball player whose probation requires community service. Add a gaggle of yeshiva buchers in love with baseball. Put them together in a pot and stir into a sweet dramedy. Against a backdrop of rabbinical supervision and the players' orthodox practice, Charlie coaxes and cajoles his players into a capable team. Tzitsis and baseball bats do mix! Play ball!

Starring Brian Wimmer, Bart Johnson and Don Most, THE YANKLES is directed by San Diego State University graduate David Brooks.

Running Time: 115 Minutes

Rated PG
