“Brilliantly constructed ... this is award-winning filmmaking on a fearless level.” Variety

Michael and Dafna Feldmann are informed that their son Jonathan has died in the line of duty while serving in the Israeli army. As they come to terms with the news and prepare for the funeral, they’re then told that a horrifying mistake has been made. Meanwhile, Jonathan is manning an isolated checkpoint, where he and his colleagues never know what will happen next ...

The new film from Samuel Maoz (Lebanon) is an extraordinary, complex feature that is both a visceral exploration of military life and an emotionally raw family drama. A source of controversy in its native Israel, Foxtrot is a film full of anger and sadness, and one that is as deeply personal as it is political.
