Nominated for 9 Israeli Oscars, with wins for Best Director, Screenplay, Actor, and Supporting Actor, this tender drama about a protective father’s road trip with his grown autistic son and the anguish of separation, is suffused with emotion and graced by deeply felt performances. Uri (Noam Imber) is too old to continue living with his father Aharon (Shai Avivi), a stubborn divorcee and Uri’s loving caregiver. But their cocooned, codependent situation is upended when Uri’s mother insists he enter a specialized facility to attain independence. Deeply reluctant to let go, Aharon escapes with Uri on an adventure-filled, often humorous trek. But with time catching up, both men must learn how to say goodbye in this wonderful and acclaimed work that has won 9 Jewish Film Festival Audience Awards to date, including Boston, Philadelphia, Miami, San Diego and Montreal.
