Variety is the theme for this weekend’s movie openings, **Sholem Aleichem** is a spirited documentary about Jewish writer who came to American and helped define his culture. A contemporary of Chekhov or Gogol, Sholem Aleichem was a major influence upon Philip Roth and Woody Allen. The Tony/Oscar winning musical, **Fiddler on the Roof,** is based upon Sholem Aleichem’s stories about Old Europe.
