You Are So Not Invited to My Bat Mitzvah synopsis
As mentioned earlier, You Are So Not Invited to My Bat Mitzvah is a film adaptation of Fiona Rosenbloom’s book of the same name.
Here’s the book’s synopsis via Amazon below:
"Stacy Friedman is getting ready for one of the most important events of her young life––her bat mitzvah! All she wants is the perfect BCBG dress to wear, her friends by her side, and her biggest crush ever, Andy Goldfarb, to dance with her (and maybe even make out with her on the dance floor). But Stacy’s well-laid plans soon start to fall apart….Her stressed-out mother forces her to buy a hideous sequined dress that makes her look like the bride of Frankenstein. Her mitzvahs are not going well at all. And then the worst thing in the entire world happens––causing Stacy to utter the words that will wreak complete havoc on her social life …You are SO not invited to my bat mitzvah!"
The Netflix official logline reads, “A girl’s bat mitzvah plans comedically unravel and threaten to ruin one of the most important events of her young life.”
Netflix provided the official synopsis in a press release.
"Lifelong best friends Stacy (Sunny Sandler) and Lydia (Samantha Lorraine) have long dreamt of epic bat mitzvahs but when popular boy Andy Goldfarb (Dylan Hoffman) and Hebrew school drama come between them, their perfect plans go comically awry. You are So Not Invited to My Bat Mitzvah chronicles the high comedy and modern teen angst that comes with family, friendship, and first crushes."
