See "The Attack" for $7.99 Tuesday price

THE ATTACK tells the story of Amin Jaafari, an Israeli Palestinian surgeon, fully assimilated into Tel Aviv society. He has a loving wife, an exemplary career, and many Jewish friends. His picture perfect life is turned upside down when a suicide bombing in a restaurant leaves nineteen dead, and the Israeli police inform him that his wife Sihem, who also died in the explosion, was responsible. Convinced of her innocence, Amin abandons the relative security of his adopted homeland and enters the Palestinian territories in pursuit of the truth.

    This seems to be a popular movie, and it's Cheap Tuesday, so you may want to buy your ticket online, or at least buy it at the box office before coming to the coffee shop... :)

    I saw this Sat and am still thinking about it. Terrific film, really wish I could be there for the post film discussion.

    This film has caused lots of controversy, I liked Ziad's (West Beirut) which granted him international recognition.

      I read this book four years ago and really loved it as I thought it was the most unbiased book about the Palestine- Israel conflict. At that time, I thought about writing a script based on the book and contacted Mr. Khadra who kindly connected me to his publishers. The publisher told me that the right for the script was already sold but I kept contact with the author. I am so curious to see how Ziad Doueiri pictured this interesting book. I can still picture the opening scene in my mind...

    If you are a Scene cardholder, you get an extra 10% off of admission on Tuesday nights. That would bring the cost of your ticket to approximately $7.19. Not a huge discount, but it's still better than nothing.
