7 Days in Entebbe

SHO | 9:00 pm

Jose Padilha’s 2018 action thriller chronicles the events and personalities that made up Operation Entebbe, a 1978 incident in which two Palestinian and two German tourists hijacked an Air France flight en route from Tel Aviv to Paris and held the passengers — 53 Palestinian and pro-Palestinian militants — for ransom. When negotiations failed, the Israelis approved a counter-terrorist hostage rescue operation. Critics praised the cast, headed by Daniel Bruhl and Rosamund Pike, while marveling that the film manages to make these suspenseful events surprisingly dull.
