“…an enjoyably human mystery.” The New York Times

Celebrated Israeli filmmaker Shemi Zarhin – who directed Aviva, My Love among many others – is back with a family drama that will make you laugh and reach for the Kleenex simultaneously. When Yona, the family matriarch, dies suddenly, her three grown-up children stumble upon a dark family secret that changes everything they ever knew about their parents, and themselves. The Kind Words tells a sweeping story of familial love and betrayal, with just the right amount of vintage Eurovision fun.
