Matthew Orton’s OPERATION FINALE in US cinemas now

Film News

This true-life dramatic thriller is written by Matthew Orton and directed by Chris Weitz (“About a Boy,” “New Moon”). Produced by MGM, Oscar Isaac, along with Brian Kavanaugh-Jones and Fred Berger under their Automatik company and Jason Spire’s Inspire Entertainment.

Starring Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley (“Gandhi,” “Schindler’s List”) and Golden Globe winner Oscar Isaac (“Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” “Ex Machina”), OPERATION FINALE details the daring and brilliantly executed mission to capture Adolf Eichmann, one of the chief architects of the Holocaust. A key operative in the covert mission of Israeli intelligence and security agencies, Mossad and Shin Bet, is the tireless and heroic Peter Malkin (Isaac).

“Ben Kingsley & Oscar Isaac Excel In Tense And Exciting Film”, “Operation Finale is on one hand a tense cat-and-mouse thriller but also a powerful and important reminder of one of history’s most shameful moments”, “a stirring entertainment but also strong stuff. Highly recommended.” Deadline

““Operation Finale,” an earnest and effective dramatization of the efforts to find Eichmann in South America and convey him to Israel, instead emphasizes the evil of evil. And also, secondarily and not always comfortably, its charm.” New York Times

Weitz and screenwriter Matthew Orton are more interested in detailing how everything almost went wrong at every turn…It’s those scenes, in fact, that give Operation Finale its finest moments”, “You find yourself moved by what the filmmakers are doing, lingering on the way space and sound are used to grant a final moment of peace.” Rolling Stones
