Omar

This Academy Award-nominated drama relates the story of a Palestinian baker (Adam Bakri) who routinely scales the separation wall to meet up with his young girlfriend (Leem Lubany). Arrested after the pointless death of an Israeli soldier, Omar is tricked into working for the Israeli government as an informant. But will he betray his friends, or is he tricking his handlers? This highly authentic, intentionally ambiguous sociopolitical melodrama manages to combine elements of a thriller and a romance. In Arabic and Hebrew with English subtitles. 98 minutes Unrated.
