In Theatres: REINVENTING ROSALEE

Coming to theatres today, Friday, April 5:
REINVENTING ROSALEE

Director:
Lillian Glass

Premiere:
Los Angeles Jewish 2018

About:
A portrait of a 102-year-old Holocaust survivor.

Rosalee Glass survived the Holocaust and a Siberian gulag to eventually have a family, and, in her later years, embrace life to the fullest, challenging herself to become an actress, travel, and participate in new activities, from boxing to senior beauty pageants. She’s an optimistic, ever-smiling figure, happily retelling her story for her daughter Lillian’s camera here. The result, unfortunately, is largely amateurish, from its old-fashioned and excessive narration to poor, home video quality footage, making it something of a headscratcher that this is being released commercially at all.
