Borrowed Identity DVD
In late-'80s Jerusalem, the prodigious intellectual gifts of young Palestinian Eyad (Tawfeek Barhom) won him entry into the city's most prestigious boarding school. His struggles to fit in as the academy's only Arab, his surprising bond with a handicapped classmate (Michael Moshonov), and his forbidden attraction to the beautiful Jewish girl Naomi (Daniel Kitsis) are memorably chronicled in this singular coming-of-ager. Yaël Abecassis, Ali Suliman also star. 104 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: Hebrew and Arabic Dolby Digital 5.1; Subtitles: English; theatrical trailers. In Hebrew and Arabic with English subtitles.
