Director: Oded Davidoff
Cast: Bar Belfer, Yonatan Bar-Or

Synopsis:

My 1 cent worth:

Conclusion:
Highly recommended. I actually enjoyed the film, maybe even more so than Nina's Tragedies (despite its many awards) and Things Behind the Sun (with its very well written complex characters in a family of five). The latter two are great works, but I think "Someone to Run With" can really bridge the gap between audience who are adults and teenagers, and mainstream and art film goers ...


PS: As usual, do NOT read reviews/synopsis that may give away why the girl is doing what she is doing ... it kind of spoil the surprise element in the film ...
