    A good example of the current (i.e. post-2000) manner of treating gay characters in feature films. They're there, in the same way that straight men and women and the old and minority groups and children are there: all part of the palette drawn on by the writer and director, but not central to the action *because* they're gay. Convincing performances by all involved in this movie, which isA good example of the current (i.e. post-2000) manner of treating gay characters in feature films.

    Attempts the miraculous but achieves the adequate.

    Its suggestion that Israel, of all nations, should know better than to persecute minorities within and across its borders, give the film a thrilling universal appeal.
  3. Compassionate and marvelously acted, although a subplot about the gay grandson slows the story down for a while.
