Kidnapped, Under Paris, Eric

Movie 1: Kidnapped

This is a very intense historical drama based on a true story. In 1858 Pope Pius IX has a young Jewish boy kidnapped to persuade his parents (and all Italian Jews) to convert to Catholicism. It’s a powerfully told story with good acting. Italian with English subtitles. Currently in select theatres but look for it streaming later this year.


Movie 2: Under Paris

This is a really good horror movie about sharks in the Seine river in Paris. As Paris is getting ready for the Olympics and events in the river, the government tries to get rid of the sharks. Totally implausible, but fun none the less. On Netflix. We watched the dubbed English version.


Movie 3: Eric

This is an excellent psychological thriller about a young boy who goes missing in New York City in the 1980’s. Benedict Cumberbatch is outstanding as the boys puppeteer father. Excellent acting, writing and directing. Six part miniseries on Netflix.
