Want to spoof Purim and the Oscars? Be our Guest!
(Page 2 - Previous Page)"It's the same thing we did with Purim here. Those words have always been funny."
And it turns out that there have been a few Purim movies in the history of the cinema. There was 1948's "Queen Esther." And just last month a religious drama called "One Night With the King: The Story of Esther" came and went quickly from theaters.
Actress O'Hara noticed the advertisements for it and made the connection to "For Your Consideration's" "Home for Purim." "I thought, 'There's a double bill,'" she says, laughing, during a separate interview in her hotel room. "Because I was educated during this movie, I recognized the character names. I've learned so much in my journey as an actor."
"For Your Consideration" opens in theaters on Nov. 17.
