Cost: $36

The Atlanta Jewish Film Festival begins with the Atlanta premiere of Shoelaces. Nominated for eight Israeli Academy Awards including Best Film, the film is a wholly engaging, tender family dramedy about the knotty relationship between an aging, irascible mechanic and the exuberant special-needs son he abandoned long before. With his ex-wife's untimely demise, Reuven (Doval'e Glickman, in an Israeli Academy Award-winning role) is suddenly thrust into the position of caring for his now-grown son, whom he first considers placing in a group home. Audience members can look forward to a post-film discussion with lead actor Nevo Kimchi. For more details, visit www.ajff.org. Tickets go on sale January 28, 2019. #AJFF2019
