It is the year 2000, Israeli forces are preparing to withdraw from Lebanon after 18 years of occupation, and in the final days, a handful of Israeli soldiers await evacuation from the southern Lebanese crusader fort, called Beaufort, where they’ve been stationed. And wait. And wait, like characters out of a Samuel Beckett play. Adapting his spare, intense, award-winning film from the novel by Israeli TV programmer Ron Leshem, Joseph Cedar has created a movie of tremendous power — nerve-racking, astute, and neutral enough to apply to all soldiers, in all wars, everywhere.
