Director Avi Nesher is scheduled to be present.
In this moving family drama—interspersed with exuberant comedic moments—Yonatan returns to Israel after being in the U.S. for years. This is at the request of his father, a marriage counsellor who wants him to join his practice. He is also scheming with Yonatan’s ex-wife to get him to keep their daughter from marrying a semi-famous pop star, Shacar, who recently converted from playboy to devoted Hasid. No one believes Shacar’s reformation, but Yonatan is reluctant to meddle in his daughter’s affairs. Nesher artfully unveils complex characters who wrestle with the balance between protecting their children and knowing when to let go. In Hebrew with English subtitles.
