Meet a movie mensch? We hate to be the ones to tell you, but the weekend’s excitement is pretty much confined to the Upper West Side, specifically, the Jewish Film Festival up at Lincoln Center, where today’s screenings include Two Lives Plus One, about “a Parisian schoolteacher in midlife crisis … who escapes to a graveyard, imagining conversations with her deceased father,” according to a press release. Oy! We’re saving ourselves for Young Freud in Gaza.

[18th New York Jewish Film Festival, www.filmlinc.com for schedule]
