Everything is Illuminated

Actor Liev Schreiber (The Manchurian Candidate) turns filmmaker to adapt Jonathan Safran Foer's cult novel. Elijah Wood headlines as an obsessive young Jewish American man who goes on a quest to find the Ukrainian woman who saved his grandfather during World War II. What starts out as a wacky comedy about small-town European oddballs quickly shifts gears to become an emotional drama about the aftereffects of the Holocaust. The film is delightful, but a lot of the better moments get buried in whiplash tonal shifts. In English and Ukrainian with English subtitles. 100 minutes PG-13.
