10th Annual Houston Jewish Film Festival Closing Night: The Zigzag Kid


Based on the beloved novel of the same name by Israeli writer David Grossman, this coming of age detective story follows the adventures of Nono, a 13-year-old boy with a wild imagination who wants to be like his father, the best police detective in the world. After creating havoc at a cousin's bar mitzvah, and a few days before his own, his father sends him to visit his uncle. On the train, Nono meets up with an international thief, searches for a famous chanteuse played by Isabella Rossellini, and tries to prove himself as a detective.

The Closing Night Reception follows the screening.
