Opening night of the Sedona Jewish Film Festival kicks off with a heart-warming comedy based on a true story — “iMordecai” —  starring Academy Award-nominated and two-time Emmy-winning actor Judd Hirsch (star of the Emmy-winning sitcom Taxi, Ordinary People, Independence Day), alongside Oscar nominee Carol Kane (Hester Street) and Oscar-nominee Sean Astin (The Lord of the Rings).

Marvin is an ambitious cigar maker trying to support his own family while still being there for his aging parents, Mordecai and Fela. When Mordecai's ancient flip phone breaks, he starts to take lessons on his new iPhone, opening him up to all kinds of novel experiences and adventures, which makes him feel like a kid again.

“iMordecai” is an uplifting comedy that urges us all to live the one life we have to the fullest.

The Sedona Jewish Film Festival is presented by the Cultural Committee of the Jewish Community of Sedona and the Verde Valley and the Sedona International Film Festival.
