Follow Me: The Yoni Netanyahu Story (2012)
Two story arcs that will tragically and heroically connect. The first is the dramatic Entebbe hijack and rescue, 8 days when a nation held its breath and executed a military miracle that redefined the Jewish Nation's call "Never Again!" The second is the remarkable life story of Jonathan Netanyahu, a young soldier who struggled to find the balance between the people and the Nation he loved. This film is about Jonathan's life, and what led these two dramatic story arcs to intersect on that fateful day. -- (C) Official Site … More

Critic Reviews for Follow Me: The Yoni Netanyahu Story
A straightforward documentary that uses Yoni's own words - in the form of his moving, eloquent letters and poems - to create a searing portrait of his short but meaningful life.
[It] serves up its material with an excess of treacly music and an overabundance of glowing reminiscences. This has the odd effect of making his story less powerful than it actually is.
Never explains why, exactly, Israel embraced this dead soldier so tightly.
Doesn't give much more than a cursory sense of what Yonathan Netanyahu was like as a person.
For the most part, documentarians Jonathan Gruber and Ari Daniel Pinchot do this potent story justice.
As biographies go, this one's pretty close to hagiography - painting in personal details, glossing over the chinks in his armor and in Israeli history.
The documentary is briskly paced, often compelling, but a little soft, as it succumbs to hero worship.
Stirring doc about one of Israel's great heroes, known particularly for rescuing hostages at Entebbe airport in Uganda.
