Meital Dohan

Oscilloscope Pictures has debuted the official trailer for the indie thriller Monogamy, starring Chris Messina, Rashida Jones and Meital Dohan. The film won Best Narrative at the Tribeca Film Festival and is set to get its big screen presentation in March.

In brief, Messina plays a photographer and Jones his wife. Things go very weird when a mysterious woman hires him to take surveillance photos.

The Israeli born and raised Dohan has worked hard to make top billing in her American projects. She made a name for herself in Israel with a role in the Ugliest Esti (Israel’s Ugly Betty) television series, and then for her cinematic performances in God’s Sandbox and Giraffes.

She captivated her American fan-base with her role as the sexy rabbinical scholar “Yael Hoffman”, in the Showtime hit series Weeds, and as “Aurora” in the Sony Pictures web comedy Woke Up Dead.

Dohan, who studied acting at the Nissan Nativ studio, just finished production on a feature film, Foreclosure.

In an interview with Bullzeye , Dohan spoke of the differences between acting in Israel and acting in America: “I’m connected to both places because I already feel like New York is my home. But then again I feel like L.A. is my new home and Israel is my real home. So I kind of feel connected to all places at the moment, and I’ve done very interesting projects in both places (Israel and America).”
