Surprisingly Excellent
16 October 2018 | by bartholomewyaakovSee all my reviews

I'm always up for a movie with Jewish content since I'm a Jew. The characters were well casted and their acting was very entertaining. Hal Linden played Samuel and the grandson, Eli did a class project that encompassed the grandfather's experience in Nazi Germany as a child. He partnered up with a classmate, Kasim and retold the story with Eli's drawing and Kasim's guitar music. There were no lulls or boring parts of the movie. Loved it.
