The Outside Chance of Maximilian Glick
Release Date: January 19th, 1990
G|1 hr. 37 min.
Twelve-year-old Max Glick (Noam Zylberman) wouldn't exactly call his life exciting. It's the 1960s, and he resides in an isolated Jewish community in Manitoba, Canada. But, with his upcoming bar mitzvah, things are about to get a lot more interesting -- especially when Max meets Rabbi Teitelbaum (Saul Rubinek). Fresh from Chicago and there to help the boy prepare for the ceremony, Teitelbaum proves to be an invigorating free spirit who helps Max discover his own path with humor and chutzpah.
