Noodle (2007)

Miri, thirty-seven years old, is a twice-widowed, El Al flight attendant. She has her life carefully organized and moderated, until she discovered an abandoned Chinese boy whose foreign worker mother has been deported by Israel immigration authorities.  Miri decides to reunite the family, and embarks on an amusing and touching journey.  A lovely window into “normal” Israel people, and slice of Israeli life that we don’t often see in the world of film.
