Since I was on call last night, once I got home I put on a Netflix disc, The Footnote. It's a bittersweet film, Hebrew with English subtitles, about a father who is a Talmudic scholar, who's worked for decades on a detailed analysis of various editions of the Talmud, and a son who's become a professor in a similar but different discipline. The son is awarded a prize, but accidentally, the father gets the call...and what ensues. Bittersweet.
