"Abe" is a 12-year-old half Israeli and half Palestinian kid from Brooklyn driven by his passion for food, who has never had a dinner without a family fight. Abe escapes from a stupid summer cooking camp and is mentored by the Afro Brazilian Chef "Chico", who specializes in serving fusion food at pop up food fairs. One side of the family prefers to call him "Avraham" (in Hebrew), the other side "Ibrahim" (in Arab), while his agnostic atheist parents call him "Abraham", in English. But he prefers Abe, just Abe.
Early in the film, Abe's mother compares him to Walter White, the main character from the television show "Breaking Bad." Mark Margolis, the actor who plays Abe's grandfather, played Tio Salamanca, a recurring character on "Breaking Bad." See more »
A sweet little film that tackles important subjects.
"Abe" is a surprising little gem. A whole-hearted, sweet and tasty film that is every bit relatable.
In this comedy-drama, a 12-year-old boy cooks to unite his half Israeli and half Palestinian family, but everything goes wrong.
Running under 90-minutes, "Abe" is able to tackle religion, family drama and food, which brings us all together. Young actor Noah Schnapp delivers a sensitive performance and Brazilian musician and actor Seu Jorge offers viewers comedic relief and is the heart of this film. "Abe" is well directed and goes into surprising depths about the complications of mixed families. One of the better films I've seen these days and worth a watch if you could stream it.
