“Explosive drama. The Insult will become a major talking point.”—Jay Weissberg, Variety
In today’s Beirut, a civilian dispute blown out of proportion finds Tony (Adel Karam), a Lebanese Christian, and Yasser (Kamel El Basha), a Palestinian refugee, facing off in court. As the media circus surrounding the case threatens a social explosion in divided Lebanon, Tony and Yasser reconsider their values and beliefs as revelations of trauma complicate their understanding of one another.
The film depicts the tragedy of people who lack empathy and are polarized by political views. Shortlisted for the Best Foreign Film Oscar. 2017, Lebanon, DCP, in Arabic with English subtitles, 112 minutes, Rated R.
