Shoelaces

Shoelaces

Nominated for eight Ophir Awards (the Israeli Oscar) including Best Film, this engaging, tender dramedy explores the knotty relationship between an irascible mechanic and his exuberant special-needs son. When his ex-wife dies, Reuven must take over caring for Gadi, his now-adult son. The bond between them gradually grows but then is tested by events that raise profound moral and legal questions. A rare, honest depiction of special-needs characters, told with gentle humor and sensitivity, Shoelaces is the highly personal project of director Jacob Goldwasser, himself a parent of a special-needs child.
