A indie film titled Omar hit the big league after being nominated for an Oscar for "Best Foreign Language Film" of 2014.
The film was directed by Palestinian director Hany Abu-Assad, who also was nominated for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar in 2006 with his film titled Paradise Now.
Omar is really the deepest of love stories at it's roots, but is full of real danger, non stop suspense, paranoia of not knowing who to trust, mind games and bitter betrayal.
The character Omar (Adam Bakri) must scale a separation wall if and when he wants to meet up with the love of his life named Nadja who is played by actress Leem Lubany.
The film is really heavy and portrays Omar and his friends as freedom fighters against the Israeli occupation. It's violent and harsh with action and heart pounding scenes that don't let up through to the last frame. While the film offers no solutions to the ongoing conflicts between Israel and the Palestinians, it's a must see and a very well done film with many layers of depth.
