An Israeli comedy about an upper-middle-class suburban Sephardic couple. Meir (Sasson Gabay, The Band’s Visit) and Tova (Rita Shukrun, Game Over) are drawn to their new neighbor, a charismatic bachelor (Lior Ashkenazi, Foxtrot) who invites them to his unhinged karaoke nights. Energized by the newfound friendship, Meir and Tova undergo personal transformations in this entertaining exploration of masculinity, marriage, social status, narcissism, and conformity. Taking inspiration from his own parents’ relationship, acclaimed Israeli director Moshe Rosenthal creates a humorous, empathetic portrait of midlife self-discovery, laced with poignant wisdom.
