This story encompases an eccentric group of characters from the grandfather that thinks he's blind to a brake-dancing punk from the Ukraine who hardly speaks english. The 1st half of the movie is funny and smart and the 2nd half is sad and covers topics as diverse as family relationships, to the holocaust. The acting is powerful, emotional and genuinely touching and leaves you with having travelled through a powerful rollercoaster of emotions. Brillant acting from Elijah Wood and a must see..


Based on the acclaimed, best-selling novel, “Everything is Illuminated” tells the story of a young American Jewish man's quest to find the woman who saved his grandfather in a small Ukrainian town that was wiped off the map by the Nazi invasion.

The journey begins as a comic nightmare, with an eccentric trio of paid “expert” guides sorely lacking in expertise: a cranky grandfather who insists on bringing his unruly seeingeye dog to help him drive, and his over-enthusiastic grandson, whose fractured command of English, passion for retro American pop culture, and inability to shut up threaten to make the worst of every situation.

But what starts out as the tour from hell turns into a surprisingly meaningful journey - with an unexpected and powerful series of revelations that will indelibly change all of their lives.
