We just saw this movie. It's about the Shkolniks, father (Eliezer) and son (Uriel), who are Talmudic scholars. The father toils in obscurity, while the son is a big schmoozer. One day, Eliezer gets a call saying that he won the Israel Prize. Uriel gets called into the responsible ministry and finds out its a mistake, that he (the son) should have gotten the call, and now he has to break the news to his father. The movie has some interesting moments of comedy and drama, but gets a bit weird towards the end. I'd still give it 3.5 stars out of 5. It's a recent movie (2011, I think), in Hebrew with subtitles (if you want).
