Nominated for eight Israeli Academy Awards, including Best Film, Shoelaces is an engaging, tender drama about the knotty relationship between an aging father and the special needs son he abandoned long before. Surly mechanic Reuven reluctantly takes in his exuberant adult son, Gadi, after his ex-wife's untimely death. As Gadi becomes accustomed to life with the father he never knew, Reuven's world turns upside-down from his newfound obligations of supervisor and caregiver. In discovering that he enjoys both the responsibility and affection afforded by parenthood, Reuven vows to make up for his past shortcomings before it is too late.
