Foxtrot

108m, DCP, Israel/Germany/France

For his second feature after the acclaimed Lebanon, Samuel Maoz follows a middle-aged Israeli couple grieving the abrupt death of their soldier son—until a shocking piece of news changes everything. Shifting tone—from wrenchingly painful to mordantly funny—Foxtrot is structurally daring and full of surprises, constantly upending what its characters—and its viewers—think they know. A surefire contender for 2018’s Best Foreign Language Film Oscar, it’s a regrettably timely look at the madness of war. A Sony Pictures Classics release

In Hebrew with English subtitles
