Twelve-year-old Abe is an aspiring chef who wants his cooking to bring people together—but his half-Israeli, half-Palestinian family has never had a meal that didn’t end in a fight. He’s played by Noah Schnapp in Abe (85 minutes, English, no subtitles), which was released in 2019. Ditching his traditional summer camp, Abe begins working with an adventurous street chef who encourages him to think outside his old cuisines. But when Abe’s deceit is uncovered, he must grapple with his family, his background, and his passions, and whether even the most lovingly-cooked family dinner can heal old wounds.
