National Center for Jewish Film’s Jewishfilm.2014 – “Friends From France”

May 11, 2014 $12.00 0

NEW ENGLAND PREMIERE – In this unique political thriller set in 1979 inside the deep freeze behind the Iron Curtain, a young couple, Carole (singer/actress Soko) and Jérôme (Jérémie Lippmann), visit Odessa on an organized tour–but that’s their cover story. In fact, they are French Jews on a dangerous mission to visit with refuseniks, Jews persecuted by the Soviet regime. While risk-taking Carole is motivated by politics, Jérôme is driven by his attraction to Carole.
