Live and Become

Posted on: October 22, 2006

l_live_become.jpgWe saw the film Live and Become this afternoon as part of the San Jose Jewish Film Festival. It was a really interesting tale of a young Ethiopian Christian boy sent by his mother with the airlift of Jewish Ethiopians to Israel in 1984 and who spends his whole life pretending to be Jewish and trying to fit into that society and his new adoptive family. I felt it was a bit slow at times, but really engaging and definitely worth seeing — both for the story of the boy and his family and for the history it portrays. I don’t think we’ll be able to make any of the other films of the festival, but hopefully they’ll be available on NetFlicks eventually.
