In today's Beirut, a civilian dispute blown out of proportion finds Tony, a Lebanese Christian, and Yasser, a Palestinian refugee, facing off in court. As the media circus surrounding the case threatens a social explosion in divided Lebanon, Tony and Yasser reconsider their values and beliefs as revelations of trauma complicate their understanding of one another. The Insult was the nominee and winner of numerous awards at international film festivals- and it was nominated for the 2018 Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film. In Arabic, with closed captions in English.
"The Insult" drives the point home while offering insight into the Middle East conflict (it's at least part history lesson) by way of a riveting courtroom drama enhanced by terrific performances." - Bill Goodykoontz , Arizona Republic - Full Review: https://www.azcentral.com/story/entertainment/movies/billgoodykoontz/2018/02/01/insult-movie-review-oscar-nominated-foreign-film-adel-karem/1079735001/
