Nimer and Roy are two gay men on opposing sides of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict who fall for each other. Much as they'd like to be left alone, both political conflict and orthodox beliefs will not leave their budding relationship untouched, with most of the egregious circumstances befalling Nimer, whom security forces pressure into helping them by stripping his access to education and threatening to leave him without family. Through his eye-witnessed death of a friend, Nimer knows he can't oblige. Can love find a way through this no-win situation?Written by

Mesmerising, tense, romantic and unforgettable
Out in the Dark is a movie about true love, giving all yourself to the other person. It is set in Israel and Palestine, describing the most powerful love chemistry I have ever seen on the screen. I got really connected to the both of main characters.
Scenery is really beautiful and story is really breathtaking. There is one thing in this movie that I almost never think about. It is music, made for the movie. You can almost feel it on your skin. Especially the last one ( France by Mark Holden ). Even today, when I listen to it, I feel very sad and get goosebumps every time.
There was a debate if this was pink-washing movie. I never got that in mind. Both sides are depicted in neutral way. They are both full of good and bad characters. I do not see this movie as political. It is movie about true love and sharing all you have with other part of your soul.
The ending really got me in tears, left me thinking about future of both characters. Song France makes you feel feelings main roles feel and makes you think about all good stuff they went trough together.
Definitely, one of the best love movies I've ever seen.
