Out In The Dark review

Michael Mayer's debut film is emotionally charged

Israeli director Michael Mayer nimbly tackles a volatile cocktail of racism and homophobia in his emotionally charged debut.

Student Nimr (impressive newcomer Nicholas Jacob) and lawyer Roy (Michael Aloni) fall for each other after meeting in a Tel Aviv bar.

The only problem: Nimr’s from Palestine and Roy’s from Israel...

As the pair struggle to make things work, Mayer’s elegant storytelling probes social taboos and builds to a thrilling final act. By turns dynamic, dangerous and bursting with passion, Out In The Dark is a stark, swoonsome romantic drama.
