SHOELACES | Presented by the Gershman Philadelphia Jewish Film Festival

In this emotional Israeli family dramedy, surly mechanic Reuven (Doval’e Glickman, Big Bad Wolves) reluctantly takes in his exuberant special-needs son, Gadi (Nevo Kimchi, Footnote), after his mother’s untimely death. As Gadi becomes accustomed to life with Reuven, Reuven’s world turns upside down by his newfound obligations of supervisor and caregiver. Yet, something has awoken in Reuven since Gadi came back into his life. In discovering that he enjoys both the responsibility and affection afforded by parenthood, Reuven vows to make up for his past shortcomings before it is too late.

Thoughtful, poignant, and unexpectedly funny, SHOELACES explores the complex dynamics of adult parent-child relationships through the delicate lens of its special-needs hero.
