Must Watch: Trailer for Indie Drama 'The Attack' from Ziad Doueiri
"About your wife, doctor." Cohen Media has debuted a trailer for indie drama The Attack, from filmmaker Ziad Doueiri. It tells the story of a successful Israeli Palestinian surgeon, played by Ali Suliman, fully assimilated into Tel Aviv society with his wife, played by Reymond Amsalem. But his life is turned upside down after a suicide bombing in the city leaves nineteen dead, and police inform him his wife is responsible. There's a big twist stated up front that's a tough reveal, but necessary, because that's the entire plot. I saw this in Telluride and loved it; a powerful, moving story of how we cope with the harsh realities of this world.
Here's the official trailer for Ziad Doueiri's The Attack, originally from Indiewire:
An Arab surgeon (played by Ali Suliman) living in Tel Aviv discovers a dark secret about his wife (played by Reymond Amsalem) in the aftermath of a suicide bombing. Based on a 2006 novel by Yasmina Khadra.
The Attack is directed by Lebanese-born cinematographer and filmmaker Ziad Doueiri, of the films West Beirut and Lila Says previously. The screenplay was co-written by Ziad Doueiri and Joelle Touma, based on Yasmina Khadra's novel. This premiered at the Telluride, Toronto & Donostia-San Sebastián Film Festivals last year. Cohen Media Group is releasing The Attack in limited theaters starting June 21st this summer.
