In his latest film, 'Lemon Tree', Israeli director Eran Riklis presents a sensitive but hard-hitting commentary on the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian struggles.
The film He’s Just Not That Into You is based on a hugely successful book of the same name by Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo, who also wrote for Sex and the City.
For a while, Pride and Glory plays like the fiercest episode of Law & Order ever writ large and dashed luridly across the big screen.
