Eyes Wide Open

2009 NR

Married Jerusalem butcher Aaron (Zohar Strauss) takes pity on homeless student Ezri (Ran Danker) and hires him to work in his shop. But when romantic sparks fly between the unlikely pair, Aaron's wife, Rivkeh (Tinkerbell), becomes increasingly suspicious. The stern Orthodox community disapproves, and a menacing group of "modesty guards" monitors Aaron's every move in this tragic drama, an official selection at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival.
