You know Tel Aviv as a major Israeli hub, a sort of Mediterranean Manhattan. You are aware of its contributions to the global economy via the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange and the way its support of the arts trickles out into the world filling our lives with poetry, dance, and music. But what about the human factor? How much do you have in common with its citizens? If Jellyfish, the new film by Etgar Keret and Shira Geffen is any indication, you might learn that our lives are more similar than they are different.
Love, loneliness, and embarrassing situations bring Jellyfishs three female protagonists into a web of interaction. What emerges is a sublimely mystical tale of humanity. (Translation: Its a feel-good flick with depth. And its pretty.) Catch it today; it opens at various Sunrise Cinemas locations and also at Lake Worth Playhouse (713 Lake Ave., Lake Worth).
