Adapted from the best-selling novel by Holly-Jane Rahlens, Max Minsky and Me is a charming, family-friendly comedy set in contemporary Berlin.  Nellie, an academic achiever with no school friends, daydreams of meeting Prince Edouard of Luxemburg at a basketball championship.  Preferring sport to her upcoming Bat Mitzvah, she persuades cool Max Minsky to teach her how to play basketball, in exchange for completing his homework.  This charming and funny film charts the growing friendship and trust between two teens coping with parental separation.
