Academy Award®-winning actress Natalie Portman directs and stars in the emotional and thought-provoking story about Fania, a young wife and mother in war-torn Jerusalem, during the early years of the State of Israel. Stifled in her relationship and weary from the tedium of her new life, Fania creates fantastical stories for Amos, her 10-year-old son, amazing him with tales of adventure and beauty - stories that would influence the boy to become a writer himself. Based on the international best-selling memoir by Amos Oz, A Tale of Love and Darkness is "the most revolutionary Jewish movie since Schindler’s List" (Stephen Marche, Esquire).
