From Israeli filmmaker Eytan Fox (Yossi & Jagger, Walk on Water, The Bubble) comes an award-winning musical miniseries. It's the story of Meir, whose mother passed on to him her love of glamour and music - especially the songs of Israel’s '70s pop icon Svika Pick - but then abandoned him during his 10th birthday. After suffering through high school with the help of his best girlfriend, he goes searching for his mother, believing she ran off to perform with her pop idol. He winds up in Tel Aviv, makes new friends and reconnects with his best girlfriend and her on-again, off-again boyfriend, a sexy soldier who Meir is very much infatuated with. He soon puts his musical talent to use becoming a popular drag queen, performing under the name of Mary Lou (the title of his and his mother's favorite song).
Dir. Eytan Fox, 2010, Israel, 150 min. in Hebrew with English subtitles
