Nine years. That’s how long a friendly stranger at the fertility clinic said he and his wife have been undergoing thus-far unsuccessful fertility treatments. This comes as a bit of a blow to Liran, at the clinic for initial tests himself, as he and his wife, Tali, struggle to conceive. While the two are hopeful, it’s hard not to imagine years of hospital visits as Tali must endure daily hormone injections and weekly checkups—and that’s just the beginning. As successful 30-somethings with a stable marriage, home, and jobs, Tali and Liran didn’t expect to have this much trouble getting pregnant. Pressured on all sides from their parents, co-workers, doctors, and each other, trying to grow their family might just be what tears it apart. Approaching the delicate subject of infertility with deliberate nuance, this Israeli drama highlights issues of ingrained medical sexism and familial double standards, while keeping the desperate couple’s emotional journey at its core. Nothing can be taken for granted, which is something Tali and Liran learn as they do their best to secure their family’s future and survive THE ART OF WAITING. (In Hebrew with subtitles) — D.O.
