The Girl On The Train

From July ’10 Spotlight: Cinema/Chicago, in collaboration with the Consulate General of Israel to the Midwest, will show the 2004 film Avanim as part of this year’s International Summer Festival…

Meanwhile, the Gene Siskel Film Center (on State Street) has screenings of The Girl on the Train scheduled from July 11 through July 14.  Set in Paris, this 2009 film is about a well-known Jewish attorney who becomes involved with the victim of an anti-Semitic attack. Most of the French cast members will be new to American audiences, but Catherine Deneuve plays the victim’s mother (once romantically-linked to the attorney) and Ronit Elkabetz plays his Israeli daughter-in-law.
