Lemon Popsicle

"Three boys, one summer... Only one thing on her mind!"

Lemon Popsicle is an Israeli coming-of-age story that takes place in Tel Aviv. The film shows three high school students who deal with daily life in a bustling Israeli city, falling in love, and the difficulties of becoming young adults. The story focuses on Stella, a depressed woman in the mid-40s whose lover never returned home. When the street ice delivery guy sends a young teenage boy named Benji to her home, Benji accidentally breaks the ice. The lonely woman invites the young Benji into her home. After a moment of intimacy, in which Stella feeds Benji leftover ice, the young man runs out, claiming he needs to return to work. He catches up with his two friends and tells them about Stella.

Then, they decide to visit Stella, who serves them red wine and begins throwing a party. She dances with each of the young boys and seduces all of them, one by the one. As each boy enters Stella's bedroom, Stella can be heard moaning during sex. The film mocks Stella's accent and Hebrew language skills as she is a new arrival to Israel. Although the first boy immediately has sex with Stella, the second hesitates. Stella reassures him and they have sex. However, when Stella approaches Benji, her long-lost lover finally returns home. The boys quickly throw on their clothes and leave, but the second boy is stuck in Stella's bedroom in his underwear. When the lover sees the second boy, the boy yells, "She is a sex addict alright!" and the lover becomes furious.

Although Benji brings his friends to have sex with Stella, Benji himself is in love with a young woman his own age. He sleeps with her and, upon finding out that she is pregnant, leaves her to scrounge for abortion funds on her own. For the rest of the film, Benji tries to get her back, but with little success. The comedic scenes overshadow these heavier themes.
