Israeli romantic comedies are few and far between in the local film landscape; a fact which makes Julia Mia stand out that much more. Jonny (or Yohanan, his real name), directs low budget yet fairly successful trash films (aka ‘cassette flicks’). One day, he crosses paths with Mia, a sales rep for Israeli cabler, YES, who bears an uncanny resemblance to Julia Roberts. Their chance encounter sets Jonny’s imagination alight and inspires him to start working on his next film – a local remake of Pretty – only set in the East Tel Aviv slums and starring Mia. Julia Mia won Best Film at the Haifa International Film Festival.
