A Tale of Love and Darkness ★★½

You know that feeling when you read an incredible book and then immediately watch its very meh adaptation? ☹️ Props to Natalie Portman for having the ovaries to direct, write, and star in an Israeli film spoken entirely in Hebrew. Just wish she had a lighter touch and eased up on the style a bit. There’s only so much slow motion and sad violin music you can take. 🇮🇱🎻
