Set in the middle-class Israeli suburb of Holon, director Moshe Rosenthal’s hilarious and touching debut feature film follows retired couple Meir (Sasson Gaby) and Tova (Rita Shukrun), who over the years have lost their passion for each other and for life. When their charismatic new neighbor Itsik (Lior Ashkenazi) starts hosting karaoke nights in the penthouse upstairs, they both become seduced by his energetic charm and begin to compete for his attention. Featuring standout performances and a wry yet affectionate sense of humor, KARAOKE explores what it means to grow old together while staying youthful along the way. A Greenwich Entertainment release.
