Tribeca 2017: 'Bobbi Jene' Review

No, this isn't a movie about the Bruce Springsteen song. Bobbi Jene is a very affecting documentary about Bobbi Jene Smith, an American dancer who decides to come home after making her name as part of an acclaimed Israeli dance troupe. But will the move hurt her career? And what about her romantic relationship with a younger dancer in the company who stays behind? Lots to really savor here, as I explain in my Screen International review.
