Everything Is Illuminated
Source: Catholic News Service
Reflective road movie about a young Jewish-American (Elijah Wood) who travels to Ukraine where -- guided by a colorful local (Eugene Hutz) and his crusty grandpa (Boris Leskin) -- he searches for the woman who saved his own grandfather from the Nazis. Lyrically directed by Liev Schreiber, the intimately scaled adaptation of Jonathan Safran Foer's complex novel is by turns poignant and mutedly funny, resulting in a moving meditation on family, identity, memory, guilt, anti-Semitism and the human need for connectedness. Suggested wartime violence, including discreet death images, a suicide, a brief scene of a boy looking at a pornographic magazine, an instance of rough language, as well as some crude expressions and profanity. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
