Product Details

A handsome Washington D.C. doctor and a young New York woman fall in love at an unusual time...after they get married. Leah Lever (Lauren Ambrose) is married to an Orthodox rabbi, Benjamin Lever, whose brother, Jake (Adam Kaufman), is a successful cardiologist and a non-practicing Jew. Jake is stunned when Benjamin dies suddenly, but not as stunned as when he is told that, under an ancient Jewish Law, he is expected to marry the childless Leah to carry on Benjamin’s name. The only alternative is to go through a ceremony where Jake must deny his brother’s existence. For Jake, that’s unthinkable, so impulsively he suggests to Leah that they get married and maintain a secretly platonic relationship. Eager to pursue her own dreams, Leah gladly accepts. Their oversimplified plan to live separate lives under the same roof proves challenging when Leah’s suspicious mother shows up unexpectedly. The harder they try to disguise their "pretend" marriage, the more their appreciation for each other’s worlds grows—and out of understanding, a real love develops. Loving Leah is a heart-warming story with moments of gentle humor.

    Loving Leah

    This a charming and delightful movie. It doesn't require that belief in or have any in depth knowledge of Judaism or any other religion. It deals with the issues of people who choose to follow there hearts in a different circumstance than they expected. The challenges faced and resolved. The acting is wonderful; a great cast. It is entirely enjoyable, funny and one that is happily watched repeatedly.

    Hallmark movie Loving Leah

    I love the Hallmark movies but this particular movie is my very favorite one! Being Jewish, I understand and relate to this story! I enjoyed this movie and it warmed my heart and I would like to see more of Jewish themed films because being Jewish I really cannot relate to all the Christmas films you offer!
