Yesterday, in my Film Symposium class, I watched a film called Focus...starring William H. Macy and Laura Dern (both who are in Jurassic Park 3). It was pretty good film. The story's theme is about anti-Semitism in the U.S. during the World War II years. Macy and Dern play a couple who are mistaken to be Jewish--which causes Macy to be demoted from his job (he quits) and leads the couple to being harassed in their neighborhood. Pretty crazy stuff...and the ending was very interesting. Unexpected but powerful--which the ending to a film like Artificial Intelligence could've been if the last 15 minutes was cut out.
