“It will reach into the tender-most part of your heart and touch it as few movies have." - Jeffrey Lyons, Lyons Den Radio, WCBS

In the last store in a defunct shopping mall, 91-year-old Sonia Warshawski—great-grandmother, businesswoman, and Holocaust survivor—runs the tailor shop she’s owned for more than thirty years. But when she’s served an eviction notice, the specter of retirement prompts Sonia to revisit her harrowing past as a refugee and witness to genocide. A poignant story of generational trauma and healing, Big Sonia also offers a laugh-out-loud-funny portrait of the power of love to triumph over bigotry, and the power of truth-telling to heal us all.

Q&A with special guests Leah Warshawski, Todd Soliday and Morrie Warshawski. 

Big Sonia opens at the Laemmle Music Hall and Town Center on December 8 and runs through December 14.
