Dir. by Joseph Ceder | Drama/Comedy Israel | 2012 | 106 minutes | Hebrew with English subtitles 

Funny and smart, Footnote is the tale of a great rivalry between a father and son — two eccentric professors who both dedicated their lives to work in Talmudic Studies. The father, Eliezer, is a stubborn purist who fears the establishment. His son, Uriel, is a progressive rising star. One day the tables turn, and their complicated relationship reaches a new peak. Oscar Winner for Best Foreign Film and recipient of the Cannes Film Festival Award for Best Screen Play.
