Original Title:

Out Of The Dark

Shot with the urgency of a political thriller rather than a homosexual romance, Palestinian student Nicholas Jacob’s dangerous liaison with Israeli lawyer Michael Aloni is a compelling, if rarely complex, insight into staying true to one’s heritage, family and self.

A sometimes over-simplified but often affecting look at forbidden love.
