Opening Film of The Jerusalem Film Festival

A moving drama on missed opportunities and the need to go forward, Sublet is the story of a New York Times travel writer who comes to Tel Aviv after suffering a tragedy and finds that the energy of the city and his relationship with a younger man bring him back to life.

Starring Tony-Award winning John Benjamin Hickey (The Good Wife) and Niv Nissim.

Eytan Fox has entertained us for three decades with gems like Yossi & Jagger and The Bubble, and now gifts us this significantly more personal film, a heartfelt and heartwarming ode to gay men and to aging. —Lucy Mukerjee

“Visually seductive love letter to Tel Aviv and its vibrant street life” – David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter
