Movie Info

Filmmaker Adam Hootnick asks whether Israel has launched a war against its own citizens in this film that offers a critical look at the 2005 withdrawal from Gaza. As Israel embarks on its biggest military operation in decades, two soldiers will be sent to evict three Israelis from their homes, and one activist will struggle to steer her country off the warpath. For this generation, the true definition of "home" has yet to be determined. These are the stories of the people on the front lines of a war in which the battleground is a blur, and the fight for peace begins in one's own backyard. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Unsettled

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (3)

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

    May 9, 2008 | Rating: 4/5
  • 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.

    May 7, 2008
  • 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.

    May 31, 2008
  • A bracing portrait of a country divided.

    May 16, 2008
  • Hootnick's approach is far from perfect (formally or politically), but at least it is engaging and worth debating.
