2023 San Diego International Jewish Film Festival Kickoff Underwriter Exclusive Film Screening & Reception  

Our Almost Completely True Story

Screen legend Mariette Hartley and jobless voice actor Jerry Sroka couldn’t be a more unlikely duo. She’s tall, famous and classy; he’s short and hides behind Groucho Marx and Woody Allen impressions. In this (mostly) true-life romance, they navigate the LA senior dating scene and find it’s never too late for love, despite family history and health crises. This adorable crowd-pleaser was written by real-life couple Hartley and Sroka and directed by Emmy winner Don Scardino (30 Rock).
