UKJF: Entebbe

Cinema

Directed by José Padilha | 2018 | UK, USA | Starring Rosamund Pike, Daniel Brühl, Eddie Marsan, Lior Ashkenazi| 107mins | Certificate 12A

Rosamund Pike and Daniel Brühl star in the true story of the 1976 hijacking of Air France Flight 139 from Israel to France, and the efforts of the Israeli government to rescue the hostages.

In July 1976, four terrorists hijack an Air France flight from Tel-Aviv to Paris and force the flight crew to land in Entebbe, Uganda. There, the Jewish passengers are held hostage, with their safety dependent on the release of dozens of Palestinian terrorists jailed in Israel, Germany and Sweden. After considerable debate, the Israeli government employs the Israeli Defence Forces to execute a daring rescue.

The ticking-clock thriller features an excellent cast playing familiar historical figures, including Lior Ashkenazi as Yitzhak Rabin and Eddie Marsan as Shimon Peres.
