About the Film

In this charmingly offbeat French comedy, Ruben is enjoying an idyllic life as a postal carrier in a small Finnish town where he lives with his gorgeous Nordic boyfriend. But just before Passover, a series of events finds Ruben kicked out of his house and on a plane back to his family in Paris. Combining farce and slapstick with tenderly poignant moments, Let My People Go! is a wonderfully entertaining look at the ups and downs of love and family.
