Ethan Fox's new film is a lovely and wistful drama about what binds two game men - one American, one Israeli - despite, or maybe because of, their generational differences. Starring Tony Award-winning and Emmy-nominated John Benjamin Hickey and featuring the debut of Niv Nissim, SUBLET focuses on a New York Times writer who visits Tel Aviv after suffering a tragedy. The city's energy and his relationship with a younger man he meets there bring him back to life.
