Jewish Film Festival - Shoelaces

MSU - Strand Union Building
Description:
Nominated for eight Israeli Academy Awards including Best Film, Shoelaces is a wholly engaging, tender family dramedy about the knotty relationship between an aging, irascible mechanic and the exuberant special-needs son he abandoned long before.

With his ex-wife’s untimely demise, Reuven (Doval’e Glickman, in an Israeli Academy Award-winning role) is suddenly thrust into the position of caring for his now-grown son, whom he first considers placing in a group home. The transition is fraught with difficulty for both, as Reuven wrestles with the obligations of parenting a child with disabilities, while thirty- something Gadi (Nevo Kimchi) grieves the loss of the mother who nurtured and shielded him. Adjusting to their new circumstances, Gadi lends a hand in his father’s Jerusalem auto repair shop and befriends the locals at a neighborhood cafe?. Reuven vows to atone for past shortcomings, over time warming to Gadi’s boundless optimism, infectious laugh and seemingly infinite capacity for love. Their co-dependent bond will be tested by tribulations that prompt complicated ethical and legal questions with profound ramifications.
