פרינסס

Trailer
Directed by Tali Shalom-Ezer
Israel, 2014
Drama
      Hebrew
      English
      NOT RATED

Synopsis

While her mother is at work, 12-year-old Adar’s relationship with her stepfather has taken a dark turn, involving gender-bending role-playing games that turn fantasy into violation. Adar searches for help, retreating into a new friendship with Alan, a waifish boy who looks startlingly like her.

Our take

The bold, award-winning debut feature from Israeli newcomer Tali Shalom-Ezer follows a young girl’s experiences in a disturbed, dysfunctional family. This dream-like, troubling, yet sensitively handled exploration of sexual trauma and inappropriate desires is unlikely to be forgotten any time soon.
