The movie tells the story of aging Sophie, who's one man short of achieving the coveted "Lordess" position in Madam Yankelova's Fine Literature Club, which will cement her position in the upper echelons of the cannibalistic secret society. Coming off a string of failed "dates," she must successfully entrap a man in the next week or lose everything. If that weren't bad enough, she ends up falling in love with her latest prospect. Now, she must choose between the Fine Literature Club and her burgeoning relationship with the attractive Yosef.
If anything, the film seems to inspire strong opinions. While the L.A. Times called it "too elliptical, remote and, er, undercooked to sufficiently engage," the Hollywood Reporter waxed poetic about its perceived merits: "Madam Yankelova's Fine Literature Club proves a darkly witty effort that weaves insightful observations about female sexuality and aging into its provocative mix."
