‘Foxtrot’ opens May 11 at Cinema Art Theater

May 9, 2018

Starting Friday, May 11, the Rehoboth Beach Film Society's Cinema Art Theater will present “Foxtrot,” a powerful drama about a family dealing with the unthinkable loss of their son. At the Venice Film Festival in 2017, “Foxtrot” won the Grand Jury Prize.

Michael and Dafna experience gut-wrenching grief when army officials show up at their home to announce the death of their son, Jonathan. Michael becomes increasingly frustrated by overzealous, mourning relatives and well-meaning army bureaucrats. While his sedated wife rests, Michael spirals into a whirlwind of anger only to experience one of life's unfathomable twists - a twist that can only be rivaled by the surreal military experiences of his son. 

Screening times are 4 and 7 p.m., Friday, May 11; 4 and 7 p.m., Saturday, May 12; 4 p.m., Sunday, May 13; 1 and 4 p.m., Monday, May 14; 4 and 7 p.m., Wednesday, May 16; and 4: and 7 p.m., Thursday, May 17. Tickets can be purchased at the Cinema Art Theater, starting 30 minutes prior to each screening. Admission for a screening is $8 for RBFS members and $11 for future members. All screenings are held at the Cinema Art Theater located at 17701 Dartmouth Drive in Dartmouth Plaza, behind the Lewes Wawa.
