“Reshef Levi’s latest film is a crowd-pleasing crime caper with an impressive cast.”- The Jerusalem Post
A huge box-office smash in Israel, Reshef Levi’s Hunting Elephants unites some of Israel’s most treasured stars of the stage and screen alongside Sir Patrick Stewart in this modern-day heist film. Jonathan is a bright 12-year-old — perhaps too bright, since everyone picks on him at school, including his teachers. His closest friend in the world is his father, Daniel. The two of them meet up every day after school when Jonathan visits Daniel at his job at the bank. One day, Daniel is involved in an accident at work and the bank refuses to take responsibility for it. With the help of his cranky grandfather Eliyahu, Eliyahu’s wily friend Nick, and a disgraced, eccentric British Lord, the boy comes up with a crazy plan that will help save his family, while getting even with his father’s sleazy former boss: the four of them are going to rob the bank!
Advance tickets are available two weeks before each screening at Uptown Theatre box office or MacLaren Art Centre, or day of screening. Theatre box office opens one hour before first screening of the day.
