Nominated for 8 Ophir Awards (Israel's Academy Awards) including Best Picture of the Year, Shoelaces tells the engaging, sweet story of the complicated relationship between an aging, surly mechanic Reuben, and Gadi, the exuberant special-needs son he abandoned as a child, and who he takes in after his mother’s untimely death. Thoughtful, poignant, and unexpectedly funny, Shoelaces explores the complex dynamics of adult parent-child relationships through the delicate lens of its special-needs hero. A rare, honest depiction of special-needs characters, told with gentle humor and sensitivity, Shoelaces the highly personal project of director Jacob Goldwasser, himself a parent of a special-needs child.
