Hi everyone,

Just to recommend a good French-Palestinian-Israeli fiction film, The Other
Son, now playing at the Kendall Square cinema through Thurs. Nov. 8. It's
simple but well done, and very French (which means they see clearly).
Definitely worth supporting.

Current show times: (1:10 3:50) 6:50 9:15

Official description and information:

The Other Son is the moving and provocative tale of two young men—one
Israeli, the other Palestinian, who discover they were accidentally
switched at birth, and the complex repercussions on themselves and their
respective families. Joseph (Jules Sitruk), an 18-year-old musician
preparing to join the Israeli army for his mandatory military service,
lives at home in a comfortable suburb of Tel Aviv with his parents,
France-born physician Orith (Emmanuelle Devos) and Israel-born army
commander Alon Silbers (Pascal Elbé). A blood test for Joseph's military
service reveals that he is not their biological son; during the Gulf War
Joseph was evacuated from a clinic along with another baby; both were given
back to the wrong families. While the Palestinian Joseph went to Tel Aviv
with the Silbers, their actual Jewish son, Yacine (Medhi Dehbi) was brought
to the West Bank by the Arab couple, Said (Khalifa Natour) and Leila (Areen
Omari). The revelation turns the lives of the two families upside-down,
forcing them to reassess their respective identities, values and beliefs.
The Other Son features a terrific multi-national cast hailing from France,
Palestine and Israel, and is directed and co-written by Lorraine Levy.
