Follow Me: The Yoni Netanyahu Story

Now Playing Synopsis: On July 4, 1976, Lt. Col. Yonatan Netanyahu (brother of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu) sacrificed his own life to save the lives of 103 hostages being held in a Ugandan airline terminal. He was the only soldier killed during the daring nighttime raid, but the tragedy of that loss was devastating for his family, friends, and fellow soldiers. In this documentary, filmmakers Ari Daniel Pinchot and Jonathan Gruber allow Yonatan's own writings to tell the story of a hero whose inner conflict offered a unique perspective on a war that began long before he was born, and still rages on decades after his death. Actual audio from the operation offers a vivid glimpse at a defining moment in history, and for the first time ever, Yonatan's ex-wife speaks candidly about the man behind the soldier. Additional interviews with three Israeli Prime Ministers offer insight into both Yonatan's character, and the volatile political situation that led to his death. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Ehud Barak, Benjamin Netanyahu, Tuti Netanyahu, Shimon Peres, Tirza "Tutti" Goodman, Bruria Shaked-Okon Movie Details Buy Tickets Movie Review
