Meet the Patels

Meet the Patels

2015, PG, 88 min. Directed by Geeta Patel, Ravi Patel.

Not reviewed at press time. Quite likely one of the funniest documentaries you'll ever see, the brother-and-sister filmmaking team use live action, still photographs, and animation to tell the story of how the parental Patels go about finding a love match for their 30-year-old son.
