7 Days In Entebbe

A gripping thriller inspired by the true events of the 1976 hijacking of an Air France flight en route from Tel Aviv to Paris. This shocking act of terrorism led to one of the most daring hostage rescue missions ever attempted.

The four hijackers – two Palestinians and two left-wing German radicals – divert the plane to an abandoned terminal at Entebbe Airport in Uganda. Among other demands, the hijackers seek the release of forty imprisoned Palestinian terrorists and combatants. The terrified passengers become bargaining chips in a deadly political standoff. As the likelihood of finding a diplomatic solution fades, the Israeli government sets in motion an extraordinary plan to free the prisoners before time runs out. As in his earlier works, director José Padilha (TROPA DE ELITE) uses real events as an opportunity to explore themes of fear, violence, destruction and self-destruction.

José Padilha, UK, USA, 2018, 107 min. English spoken, Dutch subtitles. With Rosamund Pike, Daniel Brühl, Eddie Marsan, Kamil Lemieszewski, Ben Schnetzer.
