Portraits of two beloved icons--Sholom Aleichem and Theodore Bikel--are woven together in this enchanting documentary. The two men have much in common: wit, wisdom and talent, all shot through with deep humanity and Yiddishkeit. The film Theodore Bikel: In the Shoes of Sholom Aleichem combines Bikel's charismatic storytelling and masterful performances with a broader exploration of Aleichem's remarkable life and work. A pioneer of modern Jewish literature who championed and luxuriated in the Yiddish language.
