Dir. Samuel Maoz (Israel/Germany/France/Switzerland, 2017, 114 min.)
Michael (Lior Ashkenazi) and Dafna experience gut-wrenching grief when army officials show up at their home to announce the death of their son Jonathan. Michael becomes increasingly frustrated by overzealous mourning relatives and well-meaning army bureaucrats. While his sedated wife rests, Michael spirals into a whirlwind of anger, only to experience one of life's unfathomable twists--a twist that can only be rivaled by the surreal military experiences of his son. (Opens in NYC theaters on March 2.)
