    This insightful character study of an extended family was a TV movie directed by Eran Kolirin, who a few years later would make the much loved THE BAND'S VISIT. Here, in THE LONG JOURNEY he was focused on a young boy obsessed with basketball and with dreams of meeting a famous Israeli player at a practice game his father has promised to take him to. But the father has too many problems -- separation from his wife, gambling debts, and a crumby sales job representing house trinkets no one wants. The boy's mother is trying to date men she meets over the internet, but they are all jerks of one sort or another. Her parents have their own issues, especially her father who is obsessed with a neighbor who seems to always get his way, even with an unjustified "Handicapped" parking sign. The film takes place in less than 24 hours, but during the scenes from that day and night we learn a lot about some everyday people just trying to get by in modern-day Israel. The actor Alon Pdut now lives in Austin and will be on hand for a Q&A following the film. You can see his most recent performance in OUT IN THE DARK, an Israeli film well received at Toronto in 2012.
