Rosamund Pike & Daniel Bruhl star in this nail-biting depiction of the most daring rescue mission in history.  In July 1976, an Air France flight from Tel-Aviv to Paris via Athens was hijacked and forced to land in Entebbe, Uganda. The Jewish passengers were separated and held hostage in an effort to free dozens of Palestinian terrorists and anarchists jailed in Israel, Germany, and Sweden. After much agonising, the Israeli government sent an elite commando unit to raid the airfield and release the hostages.  With Nonso Anozie as Idi Amin.

The Gaza conflict remains one the most heated, divisive issues in global politics to this day. This debate has manifested itself in the arts extensively with myriad works supporting arguments on either side. To find an objective middle ground is seemingly impossible but 7 Days in Entebbe walks that razors edge with style and grace.”  The Upcoming

“The war-room negotiations are tautly realised. Bruhl and Pike are excellent, as ever, Nonso Anozie’s appropriately itchy depiction of Ugandan President Idi Amin is a remarkable thing: his reassurances invariably sound like threats; his glowering can suddenly implode into beaming benevolence.  The use of archival material – so often a tiresome trope in contemporary cinema – is expertly judged.”  Irish Times
