Date night movie

Somehow I didn't know about this movie until today. Oscar Isaac and Ben Kingsley star in Operation Finale, based on the true story of the manhunt, capture, and trial of Adolf Eichmann, one of the key Nazi officials involved in the Final Solution. Eichmann will be played by Kingsley. It speaks to his acting talent and versatility that he has previously played victims of the Holocaust, such as Simon Wiesenthal (Murderers Among Us: The Simon Wiesenthal Story), Otto Frank, father of Anne Frank (Anne Frank: The Whole Story), and Itzhak Stern (Schindler's List).

There have been other films made about Eichmann, It will be interesting to see how this film handles its subject matter.
