New Israeli Film on Jacob & Esau Features Harvey Keitel & Shira Haas

The trailer for an Israeli English-language film - a loose modern reenactment of the story of Jacob and Esau - has just been released. The film stars Harvey Keitel as Abraham, Shira Haas (from Unorthodox and Shtisel) as Leah and Lior Ashkenazi in the title role of Esau. Ashkenazi is the winner of 3 Ofirs (the Israeli Academy Awards) for best actor. It also features as Sarah, Gila Almagor who won a lifetime achievement award at the Ofirs - and then won two best actress awards. The film is called Esau and it will be available to stream online from December 1.



I am very excited to see this, not just because of my namesake (Kobi is a nickname of Jacob), but because as an Israel tour guide I do a reading from the book on which the movie is based, Esau by Meir Shalev, when I guide Mount Herzl. I wonder if it made it into the film - and if anyone of you will remember it :). Either way it will be fun to try and see how the biblical narrative is adapted to the modern world. This is the first of Shalev's more than 30 books to be made into a movie.
