Movies: Fiddler on the Roof

This week, we thought we'd review an oldie, but a goodie. Our Grandpa Chris loves this movie, and has passed on this passion onto his children, and now his grandchildren! Fiddler on the Roof is a classic film about Jews in Eastern Europe and what happens when the Russian government decides to teach them a lesson.

This movie follows Tevye and his three daughters, who each choose increasingly scandalous husbands. The family has hopes and dreams, and eventually those hopes and dreams force the daughters to choose between what could be and what has always been. The movie is a beautiful tale of family, love, tradition, and hope. Also, we do love ourselves a good musical, and no one can deny the powers of Sunrise, Sunset or Matchmaker.

Quick vote: Who doesn't love a classic musical? And also one that you can now watch on Hulu? An unbeatable combination.
