- Synopsis / Plot
- In actor Edward Nortons directorial debut, Brian (Norton), a priest, and his best friend, Jake (Ben Stiller), a rabbi, both fall in love with their long-lost childhood friend, Anna (Jenna Elfman), who has returned to Manhattan to pursue her hectic business career. However, Brian has taken a vow of celibacy, and Jake is constantly being set up by Jewish mothers in his temple. The workaholic Anna isnt Jewish, but this doesnt stop her from returning Jakes affection and beginning a relationship that they hide from Brian. As their relationship progresses, complications arise, leading Jake, Brian, and Anna to deal with questions of both religious and romantic faith.
As Rabbi Jake, Stiller once again displays his excellent comic timing, and his scenes with Elfman, Norton, and Anne Bancroft (as Jakes traditional Jewish mother) carry KEEPING THE FAITH. Set in lushly filmed New York City, Nortons film exhudes an innocent charm thats sure to please audiences of all denominations.
