    LOVING LEAH (2009)

    A handsome Washington D.C. doctor and a young New York woman fall in love at an unusual time after they get married. Leah Lever (Lauren Ambrose) is married to an Orthodox rabbi, Benjamin Lever, whose brother, Jake (Adam Kaufman), a successful cardiologist and a non-practicing Jew. Jake is stunned when Benjamin dies suddenly, but not as stunned as when he is told that, under an ancient Jewish Law, he is expected to marry the childless Leah to carry on Benjamin’s name. The only alternative is to go through a ceremony where Jake must deny his brother’s existence. For Jake, that’s unthinkable, so impulsively he suggests to Leah that they get married and maintain a secretly platonic relationship. Eager to pursue her own dreams, Leah gladly accepts. Their oversimplified plan to live separate lives under the same roof proves challenging when Leah’s suspicious mother shows up unexpectedly. The harder they try to disguise their "pretend" marriage, the more their appreciation for each other’s worlds grow – and out of understanding, a real love develops.

    Stars: Lauren Ambrose, Adam Kaufman, Susie Essman, Ricki Lake and Mercedes Ruehl
