Britain's answer to Grossinger's, The Green Park Hotel in Bournemouth was overseen by the larger-than-life Bubba Richman, a chain-smoking, brandy-loving matriarch. The hotel became a key vacation spot for Anglo Jews, from the day it opened its doors in 1943. A veritable who's who of British Jewry (such as Beatles manager Brian Epstein) came annually for the kosher food, seaside glamour and to find possible mates. This lively and warm-hearted documentary also delves into the history of Britain's Jewish community, examining how it developed and flourished, and the role that this hotel played in creating a vibrant and successful life for English Jews.
