Canadian twins Jeanne and Simon are left two envelopes in their mother’s will, asking them to find a father they thought was long dead and a brother they never knew existed. Journeying from Canada to Lebanon, the twists and turns of their mother’s mysterious past reveal an emotionally charged and gut-wrenching truth deeply rooted in the country’s tumultuous history. A political polemic, detective story and thriller, Incendies is one of the most critically acclaimed films of the year.

2010, 131 minutes, French and Arabic, with English subtitles, rated R for violence and profanity

“The storytelling in Incendies strikes me as primal the way Greek tragedy is primal. Shattering. Cathartic. It is a breathtaking film.” —Bob Mondello, NPR

“A staggering political drama that could put you in mind of the intimate sweep of Bernardo Bertolucci. . . .A mighty movie in our midst.” —Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York

“A devastating mystery thriller. . .Grabs you hard and won’t let go. There’s no way that you’ll get it out of your dreams.” —Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

“Knocks you off your feet and leaves you shaken.” —Michael O’Sullivan, Washington Post
