(DOCUMENTARY)
In a battle where there is no enemy and no victim, young soldiers are pitted against religious settlers, each taking their orders from a higher power. “Unsettled” is an American-made documentary by Adam Hootnick about the Israeli withdrawal from Gaza in the summer of 2005, an emotionally taut event that forced a nation to look deep within itself to do what is right. The Forward said “Hootnick has found a way to turn one of the most politicized subjects of our time into a sensitively wrought drama containing both suspense and moral weight.” The film opened on May 16 and is now playing, for one week only, at the Laemmle’s Music Hall 3, 9036 Wilshire Blvd., Beverly Hills. (310) 274-6869. ” target=”_blank”>http://www.morgan-wixson.org.
