The Farewell Party (Mita Tova)

TheFarewellParty 550The mix of gallows humor, moral pondering and uplift is deft... and the acting... is universally fine... An unlikely but genuine black comic achievement." –Newcity

Nominated for 14 Israeli Oscars, this box-office smash is a very funny, and very moving, tale of euthanasia. After a group of friends at a Jerusalem retirement home build a machine to help their terminally ill friend make a peaceful passage, rumors spread, and soon, eager clients are lining up. Sharon Maymon and Tal Granit have crafted an unforgettable film about death and life. (Israel, 2014, 95m, digital, Samuel Goldwyn Films)
