Storyline

Assi, a screenwriter and poet, is stuck in his personal life. He is full of doubt, disturbing thoughts, and existential restlessness. He is sentenced to community service due to a drunken-driving motorcycle accident in which he was involved. For his community service, he is sent to work with juvenile delinquents in Beersheba - the desert city in southern Israel - who are under house arrest and must attend sessions with Assi in the neighborhood shelter as a condition for their parole. Their extreme personalities, their riotous energy, and their charm awaken in him curiosity and attraction; together, they break through the boundaries of the rehabilitative framework. Written by Jerusalem Film Festival

WRENCHING AND TRUE
5 June 2018 | by clg238See all my reviews

It's hard to believe that this is a debut film, given its power to rivet and sear. What is also amazing is Eliran Elya's use of non-actors, real kids who play the kind of at-risk kids that the film maker himself knows all too well, having come from such an environment. The authenticity shines. The dialogue of the teens and their interactions are frighteningly true. The well-known Israeli actor, Ran Danker, who plays the film-making teacher in DOUBTFUL physically resembles Elya and does a wonderful job of portraying both frustration and patience. That this film is based on a true story makes it even more poignant. It deserves to be viewed for its own artistic merit but can be an eye-opening guide to those who have never had to encounter teenagers in serious danger of being forever unable to live a normal, fulfilling life.
