"E" is for Everything is Illuminated

If you've never seen this movie, go buy it. Don't Netflix it or Red Box it, go buy it. It is so good. I lived in Russia for two years, and this movie accurately shows what it's like for an American to first go over to a Russian-speaking country. And- unlike most movies where Russians/Russian speakers are featured- this movie has native speakers and the language is fantastic. This is Liev Schreiber's directorial debut and I think he nailed it. I read the novel after the film and this was one of the few times I enjoyed the film more. It is a "premium" film.
