After her husband passes away, 42-year-old Rachel Gerlik (Michaela Eshet) decides to get a fresh start and moves from Jerusalem to the West Bank with her two teenage daughters in this thoughtful drama set in 1981.

Moshe Ivgy plays Rachel's new love interest.

Metacritic Score

  • 63

    New York Daily News Elizabeth Weitzman

    A good movie that could have been better, Joseph Cedar's sensitive Israeli drama falters when he trades sociological observations for political ones.

  • 50

    The New York Times Stephen Holden

    If Campfire is solidly acted, it is visually drab and has a haphazard narrative momentum.

  • 50

    Variety

    Juggles several storylines that include the personal and political, but is unable to get beyond soap-opera shtick.
