THE LIGHTER SIDE

Dough

JOHN GOLDSCHMIDT
UK, 2016
94 minutes, Color
Official website

In this timely comedy, the always-reliable Jonathan Pryce plays Nat, a curmudgeonly old Jewish baker struggling to keep his family business going amid urban decay and encroaching development in London's East End. On the other side of town, Ayyash, a young Muslim immigrant, is searching to find any job other than working for a dangerous small-time pot dealer. After Nat's assistant quits, Ayyash finds his way to Nat's bakery. While Nat's off negotiating with his late partner's wife and simultaneously fending off her advances, Ayyash accidentally drops a bag of marijuana into the challah dough. Suddenly, business picks way up. Surprised by all the new young customers lining up, Nat initially doesn't suspect Ayyash. However, the kid is scrambling to keep both jobs and keep both bosses from learning about each other. Dough is equally comic and poignant in its portrait of modern life.—Dave Nuttycombe
