Movie poster image for "THE INSULT"


This incredible Academy Award nominee for Best Foreign Language Film is set in today's Beirut, where an insult blown out of proportion finds Toni (Adel Karam), a Lebanese Christian, and Yasser (Kamel El Basha), a Palestinian refugee, in court. As the media circus surrounding the case threatens a social explosion in divided Lebanon, Tony and Yasser reconsider their values and beliefs as revelations of trauma complicate their understanding of one another.
