Everything Is Illuminated is an amazing movie. Well directed, well written, well acted, and with it’s heart in exactly the right place. It will make you laugh, it will make you cry, it will make you think. It’s wonderfully illuminating!
Based on the critically-acclaimed novel by Jonathan Safran Foer, “Everything is Illuminated” tells the story of a young man’s quest to find the woman who saved his grandfather in a small Ukrainian town that was wiped off the map by the Nazi invasion. What starts out as a journey to piece together one family’s story under absurd circumstances turns into a meaningful journey with a powerful series of revelations — the importance of remembrance, the perilous nature of secrets, the legacy of the Holocaust, and the meaning of friendship.
