Summer Films That Provoke

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/summer_sneaks/article/summer_films_that_provoke_20100601

Once again, this season’s lineup defies the popular assumption that films released during the summer have to be either big blockbusters or vapid youth-oriented fare designed to appeal to less discriminating, mainstream audiences. At least two upcoming films promise to provoke discussion — one deals with homosexuality in Jerusalem’s ultra-Orthodox community; the other paints a heroic picture of a loyal Nazi party member called “the Oskar Schindler of China” by The New York Times.
