THE FAREWELL PARTY:  Israel,  2014, 93 minutes, Hebrew with subtitles, Narrative

Residents of a Jerusalem senior living home struggle with a decision to help a dying friend end his life with dignity in this witty and tender dark Israeli comedy which The Forward news weekly called  “The Lighter Side of Euthanasia.”   This is not an issues movie, but more about emotions than a legal or moral debate.  The film was awarded four Israeli Academy (Ophir) awards, including Best Direction.  Aided by a talented ensemble of Israel’s finest actors, the film shows us the humanity of its characters as we laugh with them.
