Run Boy Run

cinema à la carte  

Run Boy Run 

The new film by Academy Award Winner Pepe Danquart "Run Boy Run" brings to the screen the best seller novel by Uri Orlev. It's the true stroy of nine year old Jurek (Andy Tkacz), who escaped in 1942 from the Warsaw ghetto into the woods, where he must survive on his own until the end of the war.T
Watched on Netflix last night.  Gripping and entertaining "true holocaust" film, on a par with  Europa,Europa and The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas. MoSup refuses to watch subtitled movies, but she picked this, watched it, and clap clap clapped it.

This looks like a movie I will make a point to watch. I recently watched, Naked Among Wolves (1963), about a small boy smuggled into Buchenwald in a suitcase. Sometimes we don't know our own courage until we do the right thing in the face of personal peril.
