By the time Jonathan Gurfinkel's "S#x Acts" hit the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year, it was already on a roll. The provocative Iraseli drama had already taken awards at the Haifa International Festival and San Sebastian International Film Festival, and while it didn't pick up any hardware at Tribeca, it certainly left an impression. Our own Gabe Toro noted the "heartbreaking power" of the film and it's a picture we cited as among the best and brightest Tribeca served up this year. So yes, this is one to put on your radar to watch before the end of 2013.

S#x Acts

By the time Jonathan Gurfinkel's "S#x Acts" hit the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year, it was already on a roll. The provocative Israeli drama had already taken awards at the Haifa International Festival and San Sebastian International Film Festival, and while it didn't pick up any hardware at Tribeca, it certainly left an impression. Our own Gabe Toro noted the "heartbreaking power" of the film and it's a picture we cited as among the best and brightest Tribeca served up this year. So yes, this is one to put on your radar to watch before the end of 2013.

Starring Sivan Levy, Eviatar Mor, Roy Nik and Niv Zilberberg, the story follows naïve teen Gili, who finds herself at a new school, eager to to fit in with the right crowd. She starts hooking up with the most popular guys, even allowing herself to be photographed and filmed, but it's the start down a slippery slope that finds her boundaries and limits pushed. And as you'll see in this exclusive trailer, Gili's journey is one that is harrowing and potentially tragic. And Levy in the lead role is particularly one to keep an eye, as she recently nabbed the Best Actress award at the Ophirs (Israel's version of the Oscars) for her performance.

"S#x Acts" will be available on VOD starting December 3rd and opens in limited release on December 6th. Watch below.
