Two of the most highly anticipated Jewish films had their world premieres to sold out audiences and standing ovations. “Holy Rollers,” which spotlights Brooklyn Hasids who smuggle drugs from Amsterdam (Hasidic drug mules!), loosely inspired by real events from the late 1990s, premiered to 1,400 attendees in the afternoon – including Harvey Weinstein. And Monday night introduced the documentary “Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work,” about the eponymous, provocative comedienne.
