(Italy, France, Germany, 2023, 134 minutes) Historical Drama

A captivating depiction of the controversy that shocked the world: the 1858 forced removal of a Jewish child, Edgardo Mortara, from his family by agents of the Inquisition, approved by the Pope himself. Brought to the screen with historical accuracy and striking cinematography, Kidnapped narrates a turning point in the history of Italy in general and the Jews in Europe in particular. This is the story Steven Spielberg considered filming, now brought to life by acclaimed Italian director Marco Bellocchio. Don’t miss this full-tilt drama “with the passionate vehemence of Victor Hugo or Charles Dickens” (Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian).
