Everything is Illuminated

Everything is Illuminated Some people collect stamps, cigar bands or teacups. Jonathan saves memories of familys: photos, cards, false teeth, handfuls of dirt — all sealed in individual bags and mounted on a wall. Now Jonathan seeks a more elusive memory. He'll journey to the Ukraine to find the woman who saved his grandfather from the Nazis in 1942.

Liev Schreiber (Scream, RKO 281) makes his debut on the other side of the camera, directing and adapting (from Jonathan Safran Foer's novel) an affecting road movie. Elijah Wood stars as a buttoned-up Jonathan, and Eugene Hutz plays his language-battering Ukrainian guide.

Join them as cultures clash... and as the road leads where they want to go yet never expected. They, and you, will emerge illuminated.
