Closing Night Gala: Promise at Dawn
Curzon Mayfair, Thursday 22 November, 8pm (+ Festival Awards Ceremony)
Charlotte Gainsbourg shines as a Jewish mother in this powerful adaptation of Romain Gary’s memoir. Believing in his potential from infancy and relentlessly pushing him to fulfil it, she was instrumental in her son becoming one of France’s 20th century literary giants. Although she is often delusional, her resourcefulness saves them from destitution in Lithuania and takes them to their promised land, France. Heartbreaking and funny in equal measure, Promise at Dawn is an ode to mother-child relationships – specifically Jewish yet universally relatable.
Nominated – Best Actress, César Awards
“Recounted with a lot of verve and probably more than a little invention.” The Hollywood Reporter
The first ever kids feature animation to come out of Israel, The Legend of King Solomon is an enchanting tale which will delight children and parents alike.
A magical animated adaptation of the Biblical story. Having been banished to the Arabian desert, young and dashing Solomon teams up with the beautiful Princess Na’ama of Petra and the Queen of Sheba to save the kingdom of Jerusalem from the evil Asmodeus and prove once and for all that he is just as brave as his father King David.
