Entertainment Reviews:

Entertainment Weekly - 09/23/2005
"Schreiber's heartfelt project earns points for disciplined ambition....Impressively well lit." -- Grade: B+
Movieline's Hollywood Life - 09/01/2005
"Schreiber elicits fine performances. Wood works with great subtlety, and Hutz is marvelously engaging..."
Premiere - 10/01/2005
"[Hutz gives] a performance of great comic instinct and unexpected subtlety....[A] humane, moving road trip."
USA Today - 09/16/2005
"[T]he story's intrinsic value and imaginative zest remain, as does the book's hilarious dialogue….The result is a charming and eccentric story of a journey through the back roads of the Ukraine, with a pair of unlikely guides."
Sight and Sound - 12/01/2005
"Hutz's embodiment of 'street' Kiev is a blast....Lifted directly from the book, his mangled English raises the film's biggest laughs..."
Uncut - 05/01/2006
4 stars out of 5 -- "Schreiber's balance of offbeat humour and tragedy is perfectly judged, while Leskin steals the show as the man unlocking terrible secrets from the past."

Product Description:

Everything is Illuminated

Based on the critically-acclaimed novel by Jonathan Safran Foer, "Everything is Illuminated" tells the story of a young man's quest to find the woman who saved his grandfather in a small Ukrainian town that was wiped off the map by the Nazi invasion. What starts out as a journey to piece together one family's story under absurd circumstances turns into a meaningful journey with a powerful series of revelations -- the importance of remembrance, the perilous nature of secrets, the legacy of the Holocaust, and the meaning of friendship.
