Beth El Movie Night | “The Other Son” Wednesday, Sept. 18 @ 7 p.m.
$5 per person includes snacks and popcorn.
Two babies are born at about the same time in an Israeli hospital. One is Israeli. The other is Palestinian. They’re evacuated during a missile attack, accidentally switched and raised by each other’s families for the next 18 years. That’s the plot line. When the mistake is discovered, how do the families react? What disturbs them more: that their son has been raised as an enemy or that he has been raised in another religion? That’s where “The Other Son” gets complicated.
The two fathers and the Palestinian’s brother are primarily concerned that their birth son has been raised by the “other side.” The mothers are more concerned about the return of the son they gave birth to. The way this difference plays out is all the more fascinating because the families on both sides are decent people. All are welcome to attend.
