‘Arranged’ screened at Peter White

MARQUETTE – A screening of the film “Arranged” will be at 5:30 p.m. Feb. 24 in the Community Room of the Peter White Public Library, Marquette.

“Arranged” is a dramatic comedy about Rochel, an Orthodox Jew, and Nasira, a Muslim of Syrian origin.

They are both beautiful young teachers at a public school in Brooklyn. They also have something else in common – they are going through the process of getting “arranged marriages” through their respective religious and traditional customs.

With both family pressure on the one hand, and the rejection of traditional values by the outside world on the other, Rochel and Nasira will have to rely on each other and their friendship to pull through this difficult time of their lives, striving to be strong women in charge of their own happiness, while keeping their deep religious and cultural convictions.

Winner of six film festival awards, “Arranged” was released in 2007, is rated PG-13 and runs for 90 minutes.
