Amazingly insightful and touching one-man show on the Israeli/Palestinian conflict
Very moving and extremely enlightening filmed one man play, written and performed by the British playwright David Hare. Directed with a light, deft touch by Stephen Daldry (The Hours)
It recounts Hare's experiences visiting Israel, as he interviewed people on all sides of the Palestinian/Israeli conflict. Not only is Hare's writing terrific (no surprise), but he reveals real charisma and emotional accessibility as a performer (yes, he's playing himself, but ask any actor - that's one of the hardest things to do).
I felt like I learned more in this 90 minutes, while also being more touched (and occasionally made to laugh) than I have from any other 5 dramatic films or documentaries on the subject combined.
Quite special and overlooked, and well worth seeking out.
