“Abe” Movie Review
Avraham, Ibrahim, Abe (Noah Schnapp) lives in Brooklyn, is 12 years old, loves to cook, and his life is very very confusing as his parents Rebecca (Dagmara Dominczyk) and Amir (Arian Moayed) are Jewish and Palestinian Muslims.
Rebecca and Amir would have a handle on the cultural situation if it were not for the grandparents who start, and continue, political arguments at dinnertime. Abe hates the arguing as he tries to please both his Muslim grandparents and Jewish grandparents.
An impossible task as we all know.
Finding Chef Chico (Seu Jorge) online at his evening popup in Brooklyn, Abe strikes out on the subway to meet Chef Chico. This initial meeting did not go as planned for Abe, but, he is a tough kid.
To help Abe during the summer, his parents find a Cooking Camp to go to, but, Abe is a “professional” chef and these kids are just learning the very basics. Boooorrrrrring.
So Abe heads off to camp each morning only to hit the subway as soon as mom drops him off.
He is going work, and learn, with Chef Chico at his community kitchen….
Oh, to see what happens, you will have to watch the movie on Amazon Prime.
“Abe” is another low budget indie that is a terrific movie, especially if you know who Antonia Lofaso or Alex Guarnaschelli or Aaron May are……like we do. 😉
