Adam Hootnick's Unsettled makes the political personal, drawing a scattershot yet intimate picture of a nation divided.

The reasoned arguments of these motivated, eloquent young people and the passionate but substantive confrontations in the streets are strangely heartwarming; it's a level of engagement that has proven sadly elusive for most conflicted countries.

Personalizes long-standing difficult issues in Israel, through 6 people, for a moving lesson about the rule of law and the use of the military to implement government policy.

Unsettled works to show something else, the many perspectives that might be embodied by even one person.

A bracing portrait of a country divided.

Hootnick's approach is far from perfect (formally or politically), but at least it is engaging and worth debating.

The climax of the film, the actual evacuation process, is utterly stunning and unforgettable.

Unsettled raises all sorts of messy but important questions%u2014and it does so by immersing the viewer in the personal experiences of others in a most compassionate way.

Its snapshot may only seem more profound the more outdated it becomes.

Adam Hootnick's Unsettled will not bring peace to the Middle East, but the documentary's goodwill is a corrective to Morgan Spurlock's repulsive Where in the World is Osama Bin Laden?

A terrific documentary that hones in on the Israeli government's decision to forcibly evacuate 8,000 of its own citizens from Gaza.
