“Sumptuous and romantic” The Hollywood Reporter
Winner: Best American Feature – Traverse City Film Festival
Nominated: Audience Award – Palm Springs International Film Festival
A wonderfully stylish romantic comedy from Manhattan with stand-out performances as the Jewish mother from hell from six-time Academy award-winner Glenn Close and her hilarious on-screen husband, Frank Langella. Their son, Brian Bloom, is a struggling young writer faced with a mountain of rejection letters when he meets by chance the impossibly gorgeous, but firmly married, Arielle. Following the French custom of holding romantic liaisons between the hours of 5-7pm only, so begins a funny and sweet relationship that takes unexpected directions. A brilliantly life-affirming story with fantastic joie de vivre.
4 star Guardian Review “In an inspired bit of casting, Glenn Close and Frank Langella play Mr and Mrs Bloom, proving that you don’t need to be Jewish to be a Jewish parent.”
Variety Review “Courageously sentimental in an age of irony, Victor Levin’s refreshingly articulate 5 to 7 delivers romance of the sort thought lost since the days of Audrey Hepburn, for those who appreciate such finery. And who doesn’t?”
Please note that this film contains scenes of a sexual nature.
