First-time director Natalie Portman also stars in this adaptation of Israeli novelist Amos Oz's memoir. According to IMDB, the film is 'A story about the childhood of Oz in Jerusalem and his youth in the Kibbutz during the British Mandate and the first days of the state of Israel. The plot describes the relationship between young Oz to his mother and his first steps as a writer.'

A Tale of Love and Darkness is about to be released in the US (I just discovered it via the US site SlashFilm), though it seems to have debuted in Australia late last year.
