Movie 1: The Red Sea Diving Resort
This film is set in the 1980’s when Jewish-Ethiopian refugees fled to Israel, via Sudan, assisted by Israeli Mossad agents under the cover of night by sea. This Netflix story is inspiring, terrifying, and a reminder much of the world still reflects racism and religious bigotry.
Movie 2: Lost Girls
It’s based on the book by the same name, this Netflix film is also based on real unsolved events from May 2010 when a serial killer stalked sex workers and dumped the bodies in remote Long Island marsh settings. It’s often painfully difficult to watch but also skillfully crafted.
Movie 3: Becoming
Hands down, this is our pick of the week! It’s an interesting peek behind the curtains of the former First Lady Michelle Obama. The open, honest explanation of her role, her influence supporting her husband and the engagement she had with multiple generations of supporters in the public sector. It’s riveting!
