"Gett" was Israel’s submission for the Best Foreign Language Film category at this year’s Oscars, though it did not make the shortlist. The divorce drama was, however, nominated for a Golden Globe in the same category.
Co-directed by Ronit’s brother Shlomi Elkabetz, "Gett" is the siblings’ third film together. They previously directed "7 Days" and "To Take a Wife," together, with the actress-turned-helmer starring in both films.
Critics’ Week is a showcase for first and second features.
