FOXTROT

FOXTROT

Samuel Maoz · Israel · 2017 · 113 mins · 14A · Hebrew with subtitles
IMDbRotten Tomatoes
This profoundly humane Israeli import upends your expectations at every turn. The film opens with a middle-aged couple answering the door to find a pair of uniformed IDF soldiers who inform them that their son has died in the line of duty. But rather than spend the next two hours wallowing in grim tragedy, writer-director Samuel Maoz (Lebanon) leads you somewhere completely unexpected. Anchored by a pitch-perfect pair of performances by Lior Ashkenazi and Sarah Adler as the story’s grieving parents, Foxtrot detours and dovetails like a three-part symphony on the thread-like fragility of life, the randomness of tragedy, and the fleeting moments of lightness that lay in between. In the end, what you’re left with is a deeper understanding of what it means to be alive. --Entertainment Weekly
“A deeply resonant achievement that takes a piece out of you.” Rolling Stone
“NOTHING SHORT OF ASTONISHING...A minor masterpiece that audiences will remember for a long time.” Toronto Star
Cast Lior Ashkenazi, Sarah Adler, Yonaton Shiray
