A REUBEN BY ANY OTHER NAME takes a hilarious look at the differences between Orthodox and Reform Judaism in terms of the Reuben sandwich. The four-minute film boasts great performances by an ensemble cast of familiar faces – Jasmine Anthony (Stephen King’s 1408, Commander in Chief), Anita Barone (The War at Home, Daddio), Paul Ben-Victor (In Plain Sight, Entourage), Larry Cedar (The Crazies, Deadwood), Pamela Cedar, Alanna Ubach (Hung, Legally Blonde), and Matt Winston (John from Cincinnati, Little Miss Sunshine).
