This year, we said goodbye to one of Israel’s most beloved actresses, Ronit Elkabetz, who died at the age of 51. Elkabetz starred in many Boston Jewish Film Festival favorites including The Band’s Visit, Late Marriage, and most recently, Gett: The Trial of Viviane Amsalem. We pay tribute to Elkabetz’s life and work with To Take a Wife, the first film in the trilogy that Elkabetz directed with her brother Shlomi. The film takes place in Haifa in 1979 and Viviane is working as a hairdresser, raising three children, and unhappily married to her controlling husband, Elisha. But despite her desire to break free, her traditional Moroccan brothers want her to stay married and devote herself to her household instead of to her own ideas about love and happiness.
When: Sunday, November 13
Where: West Newton Cinema
1296 Washington Street, West Newton
