Harvey Keitel, Lior Ashkenazi, Mark Ivanir and Shira Haas headline Esau, the first English-language film from acclaimed Russian-French director Pavel Lungin. Adapted from the novel of the same name by Israeli author Meir Shalev, Esau follows a 40-year-old writer who returns to his family home after half a lifetime to face the brother who stole both his love and livelihood, and offers a modern twist on the biblical story of Jacob and Esau in the book of Genesis.
