This riveting drama about workplace sexual harassment perfectly timed for the #MeToo movement centers on Orna, a young Israeli mother of three whose successes at work are accompanied by increasingly overt advances by her boss. As his restaurant is struggling, Orna’s chef husband has limited capacity for sympathy, treating her with first suspicion and then resentment. Perceptive and empathetic, Aviad’s film offers an unflinching indictment of toxic masculinity.
