How About Adolf?

About the Film

It should have been a wonderful evening. Stephan and Elisabeth have invited their family and friends for dinner, but as soon as Thomas announces that he and his pregnant girlfriend are planning to name their unborn son Adolf, things get out of hand. A bitter confrontation ensues revealing a clash of egos as truths are dragged to light, kicking and screaming. As the evening escalates and unforgivable things are said on all sides, the argument about baby names turns into a feast of childhood transgressions and hidden passions, served up for all to enjoy.

Thank You!

to our 2020 Sponsors for your support.

The Wilmington Jewish Film Festival, in association with the Wilmington United Jewish Appeal and with the support of other community groups, is a nonprofit 501(c) (3) organization whose mission is, through the screening of excellent films with Jewish content, to promote a deeper understanding of Jewish history and contemporary Jewish culture. We hope to inspire appreciation for the various forms of Jewish identity and to foster a warm sense of community.


We also wish to celebrate our heritage with the general public as we offer the larger community a forum for discussion, debate, and education on the range of Jewish experiences and themes portrayed in the films we screen.
