Actress Ronit Elkabetz debuted onscreen in her native Israel in the early '90s, and distinguished herself with multi-layered performances in indigenous productions including Shmuel Hasfari's dark family drama Practical Magic (1995), Amos Gitai's bittersweet psychological drama Alila (2003), and Keren Yedaya's family drama Or (2004). Elkabetz took one of her first directing bows by scripting, helming, and starring in the bleak marriage drama Ve Lakachta Lecha Isha (To Take a Wife) (2004) and achieved international crossover success with her portrayal of a sexy café owner in Eran Kolirin's quirky comedy The Band's Visit (2007). Her second and third directorial efforts turned out to be parts two and three of a trilogy. Playing Viviane in the films. Shiva (7 Days), in 2008 and Gett: The Trial of Viviane Amsalem, in 2014, earned Elkabetz worldwide acclaim. Gett was Israel's entry for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language film, and it was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Foreign Language Film in 2015. Elkabetz succumed to cancer after a long battle in 2016, at age 51.
