Directed by Israeli filmmakers Mihal Brezis and Oded Binnun (Aya, UK Jewish Film Festival 2016), produced by three-time Academy Award-winner Arthur Cohn and starring Brian Cox and Rosanna Arquette, Rory’s Way, based on a novel by Jose Luis Sampedro, is, unsurprisingly, one of the most accomplished feature films we have seen in a long time.
Old Scotsman Rory MacNeil leaves his beloved Hebridean island to visit his estranged son, a molecular chef, in San Francisco. Despite a devastating medical prognosis, his renewed relationship with his son, his bond with his new baby grandson and a chance meeting with a beautiful woman make him feel more alive than ever before. A poignant yet heartwarming drama about all the things that bring us together: food, language and family love.
