RIP: Ronit Elkabetz
This morning I woke up to the devastating news that the phenomenal Ronit Elkabetz passed away after a private battle with cancer. And considering she was one of my absolute favorite actresses (also an acclaimed writer-director), I felt the need to mention it here. If you're unfamiliar with her work, I urge you to introduce yourself to her glittering filmography, which includes personal faves "Late Marriage" (pictured above with co-star Lior Ashkenazi) and "The Band's Visit". Last year I profiled her in a piece for The Awards Circuit titled "10 Foreign-Language Actors You Should Now" and my final sentiment still holds true. She is truly one of Israel's national treasures. Her legacy will not be forgotten. RIP.
