Drawing Lots

A subtle Georgian comedy in the spirit of Otar Iosseliani, the now 89-year-old grandmaster of Georgian cinema.

Love and crime and secrets and dreams intertwine in this ensemble tale that wends its seductive way through a tight-knit community in a Georgian seaside town. Nothing is as it seems in the modulating rhythms of fate, the shifting loyalties and the ultimate reality that \"neighborhood\" sometimes really means \"family\".
