In the movie Foxtrot, Michael and Dafna experience gut-wrenching grief when army officials show up at their home to announce the death of their son Jonathan. Michael becomes increasingly frustrated by overzealous mourning relatives and well-meaning army bureaucrats. While his sedated wife rests, Michael spirals into a whirlwind of anger only to experience one of life’s unfathomable twists – a twist that can only be rivaled by the surreal military experiences of his son.
Foxtrot received an Oscar qualifying run in December 2017. The film was expected to not only earn a Best Foreign Film Oscar nomination, but go on to win the Oscar. When the 2018 Oscar nominations were announced on January 23, 2018, the film was left out in the cold, not earning any Oscar nominations.
