Omar - An Oscar nominated, Romeo and Juliet story set in the Holy Land

Ever since the concrete Separation Wall divided their West Bank town, childhood friends Omar, Amjad, and Tarek must surreptitiously climb over the wall - risking their lives - just to hang out. Omar has an additional motive for dodging the punishing watch of the Israeli military and their bullets: he is in love with Nadia, Tarek’s younger sister. When Rami, an Israeli military intelligence officer investigating the killing of an officer posted at a checkpoint, becomes aware of Omar’s love for Nadia (a secret kept from her brother), he draws Omar into the hell of conflicted loyalties. Masterfully paced, the film boasts compelling performances from its young cast ... Omar is set to become an Arab noir classic. Let's meet in the lobby before the show!

    Enjoyed this movie. The main actor was easy to connect with. Easy to understand why their was so much mistrust among friends when lives are in the balance.
