Who’s taking who to Ballyhoo?

It’s December 1939 in Atlanta. While Gone With the Wind premieres downtown and Hitler invades Poland, the Freitag family is more concerned with Ballyhoo, the cotillion ball for Southern Jewish Socialites. Will Lala ever get asked to go and find a socially acceptable husband? Will Boo snare Peachy Weil, a member of one of the finest Southern Jewish families? The author of Driving Miss Daisy turns a sharply amused eye on matters of assimilation and prejudice, identity and romance, in this rich portrait of a family struggling to know its place.
