Everything is Illuminated – 89% audience score in Tomatometer – On Kanopy 

“Everything is Illuminated” is a captivating and emotionally resonant film directed by Liev Schreiber, based on Jonathan Safran Foer’s novel of the same name. The movie weaves together two parallel narratives, one set in modern-day Ukraine and the other in the past, during World War II. The story follows a young American, played by Elijah Wood, who embarks on a journey to Ukraine to discover his family’s roots and track down the woman who saved his grandfather from the Holocaust.

The film skillfully combines elements of humor, drama, and tragedy as it explores themes of family, identity, and the enduring impact of history. The quirky dynamics between the American protagonist and his Ukrainian companions provide moments of humor that balance the film’s more serious themes.
