Synopsis by Kaitliin Elise Miller
In 1976, an Air France flight out of Israel is hijacked by Palestinian and German terrorists led by Wilfried (Daniel Brühl) and Brigitte (Rosamund Pike). The plane is forced to land in Entebbe, Uganda, where the Jewish passengers are held hostage. Instead of giving in to the hijackers' demands to release Palestinian prisoners, the Israeli government sends in a commando team for a rescue mission. Eddie Marsan co-stars. Directed by José Padilha. Based on true events.
