In her groundbreaking debut In Between, Maysaloun Hamoud follows three young Palestinian women sharing a Tel Aviv apartment. They find themselves “in between” independent lifestyles and the restrictions imposed on them by society. Laila, an attorney, thinks she’s found her true love, the handsome Ziad. An aspiring DJ, Salma is secretive about her relationship with a woman. The more-traditional Nour, engaged to marry a religious man, is motivated by her roommates’ ambitions and considers new possibilities.
“A breezy, light-hearted dramedy of girl power ...” —Hollywood Reporter

“A discovery at the Toronto International Film Festival, In Between hails from Israel and is one of the best recent films to come out of that country, or anywhere for that matter.” —Film-Forward.com
