In this heartwarming, sweetly funny romance-dramedy, a thirty-something Israeli couple develops baby fever, putting their relationship to the test in a frenzy to get pregnant. Liran and Tali are happily married, but their lives are missing one thing: a baby. With the biological clock ticking, they embark on protracted fertility treatments, a physical and emotional rollercoaster of medical procedures and regimented lovemaking. Facing pressure from family, friends and each other, it’s soon clear that the road to parenthood is no walk in the park. Tackling a sensitive topic with earnest performances by Roy Assaf and Nelly Tagar, The Art of Waiting’s frank portrayal of modern pregnancy resonated with Israeli audiences, as it will with you.
