Richard Linklater began filming this story of a family’s evolution in 2002, and for the next 12 years followed the story of a boy (Ellar Coltrane) and his sister (Lorelei LInklater), who are coping with the challenges of growing up with two divorced parents (Patricia Arquette and Ethan Hawke). An unprecedented work of commitment, BOYHOOD is also a universally resonant chronicle of the passage of time. (U.S., 164m, 2013, IFC Films, DCP)
They should have been sworn enemies. But after the son of a Hamas leader became an informer for the Israelis, the Israeli secret ops agent who he worked with became a trusted friend. Mosab Hassan Yousef’s fervor against Israel was unquestionable, ultimately landing him in prison. But he began to see Hamas as a problem that escalated violence, not a solution, and agreed to spy on the Hamas elite. Nadav Schirman’s true story shows how he risked death while grappling with the perception that he had betrayed his own family and people, and how his relationship with the Israeli secret agent became one of unbreakable loyalty. (Germany-U.K.-Israel, 2014, 95m, DCP)
