"This unassuming but quietly winning comedy-drama delivers on the promise of its title." (David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter)
Tom McCarthy (The Visitor, The Station Agent) returns with this new comedic drama, one of the big audience hits of this year's Sundance Film Festival. The film follows Mike Flaherty (Paul Giamatti), an attorney and high school wrestling coach who takes on the guardianship of an elderly client in a last ditch effort to save his legal practice. What appears to be a win-win proposition for him and his client quickly reveals itself to be much more complicated than anticipated, when the client's teenage grandson shows up at his door in need of a guardian himself.
Thomas McCarthy. 2011. 106 m. R. US.2:35 PM 5:10 PM 7:25 PM
Tango, a Story with Jews
When Jews fled Russia and found safe haven in Buenos Aires in the late 19th century, they brought klezmer music along with them. Its lyrical, sinuous sounds worked their way into the local traditions, contributing to the emergence of tango. This unexpected connection fuels this engaging documentary, which uses family stories and seductive historic recordings to tell the little-known account of cultural and artistic fusion.
Closing Night with Live Music Q&A APRIL 14, 7:30: Margot Leverett, Pablo Aslan & Carmen Staaf Margot Leverett is one of the foremost clarinetists of the klezmer revival and a founding member of the Klezmatics. Her current project, Margot Leverett and the Klezmer Mountain Boys, is an all-star band combining the best of bluegrass and klezmer. Pablo Aslan is a Grammy-nominated bassist and tango artist. They will be joined by accordionist Carmen Staff.
After a short discussion, Leverett, Aslan and Staff will perform, launching an exciting new project, KlezmerTango, in which they explore the intersections between the two forms of dance music.

Set in contemporary Haifa, this noir-ish drama follows the obsessive love of a successful middle-aged scientist for his much younger, very beautiful wife, whom he suspects is cheating on him. With surprising plot twists and sharp acting, the suspense grows steadily in this nuanced, humanistic tale about the cost of desire. With Orna Porat, the grande dame of Israeli theater, as the sharp-tongued mother, Naomi is a gripping addition to the collection of Jewish noir in this year’s festival.

Sayed Kashua: Forever Scared
The acclaimed Israeli Arab author, columnist, and screenwriter Sayed Kashua never feels that he belongs, living in a Jewish society. He says the Jews don’t like him because he’s an Arab, and the Arabs don’t like him because they think he’s a collaborator. This intimate documentary portrays him as a stranger in his own land. But he’s also the creator and writer of one of Israel’s most popular TV shows, the groundbreaking, edgy, and hilariously funny Arab Labor.
Dorit Zimbalist . 2009. 52 m. NR. Israel, Arabic/Hebrew with subtitles. Ruth Diskin Films.7:20 PM
