Plot: This adaptation of John Adams' powerful opera has been dogged by controversy ever since its debut in 1991. Based around the Palestinian hijacking of a Mediterranean cruise ship, and the abduction and murder of a Jewish American passenger, this is highly sensitive subject matter. Utilizing archive footage to explain the unfolding events, the film also makes several broader points about conflict in the Middle East. Filmed on location aboard an actual ship, this is a gritty, realistic opera which conveys a very real sense of unease and tension.
