Dir. Annemarie Jacir. Palestine, 2017. 1h 37m. Arabic/subs. Starring Mohammad Bakri, Saleh Bakri, Tarik Kopty, Monera Shehadeh, Lama Tatour, Samia Shanan.

With his daughter’s wedding only a month away, a divorced father and his estranged son spend a day hand-delivering invitations, bickering and reminiscing as they travel. Annemarie Jacir’s witty comedy-drama is a culturally rich look at the complicated life of a Palestinian family.

‘A film of surprising warmth and generosity, which takes a situation riven by discord and turns it into a melancholy song of resolution.’ ★★★★ Mark Kermode, The Observer Film of the Week

‘An eye-widening look at life inside a Palestinian family.’ ★★★★ Thomas Nguyen, Little White Lies
