White Mountain Jewish Film Festival

Colonial Theater, Main St., Bethlehem

The movie to be shown will be The Attack. An esteemed Israeli Palestinian doctor (portrayed by international award-winner, Ali Suliman) has lived and worked in Tel Aviv for his entire career and has been happily married for many years. Suddenly his world turned upside down by a suicide bombing, in which his wife his killed. The tragedy grows exponentially for her husband, Amin, as he begins to learn why she was caught in the explosion, and how much of her life he didn't know. What is most impressive about "The Attack" is its ability to be sympathetic to all sides of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, and most especially to Amin, the husband, who finds himself stranded in the middle. Alive to the pain everyone feels, the film captures the nuances of a problem that has defied solution. Film Critic Roger Ebert described "The Attack" as "… the best kind of anti-war propaganda film: calm in feeling and mood, yet truly terrifying in showing the scourge of our age: terrorism, which can strike anybody, anywhere, at any time." (Hebrew with English subtitles and rated R). More info: www.bethlehemsynagogue.org

White Mountain Jewish Film Festival

Colonial Theater, Main St., Bethlehem

The movie to be shown will be The Debt which is "A taut, beautifully crafted thriller..that tackles themes of humanity, revenge and truth." (Time Out).This story begins in the mid-1960s with the triumphant return of a trio of young Mossad agents from a secret overseas mission. Their accomplishment was killing "the Surgeon of Birkenau," an infamous Nazi (obviously inspired by Josef Mengele) living comfortably in East Berlin under an assumed name. Leap forward 30 years, and the three legendary figures (played by Helen Mirren in the present, and Jessica Chastain in the past) are compelled to revisit the pivotal event that shaped their lives and careers and races towards a nail-biting finish! (English and rated R)

White Mountain Jewish Film Festival - Closing Night

Colonial Theater, Main St., Bethlehem

The movie to be shown will be I'm Not Rappaport. This delightful comedy stars the irreverent and unforgettable Walter Matthau (the Odd Couple, Sunshine Boys, Grumpy Old Men) opposite award-winner Ossie Davis. It was written and directed by Herb Gardner (best known for A Thousand Clowns). The NY Times reviewer described it well: "In ''I'm Not Rappaport, Mr. Matthau has one of the richest characters of his career, Nat Moyer, an 81-year-old unreconstructed New York Jewish radical, fantasist and troublemaker…. In Mr. Matthau's hands, Nat attains a crusty, cantankerous nobility. His rash, eccentric campaigns against injustice and cruelty are an old man's way of raging against the dying of the light, of trying to make a difference in an indifferent world. It is with an almost vengeful glee that Mr. Matthau brings home the play's message: Imagination is the best defense." (English rated PG)
