From Dec ’05 Spotlight:While the lion’s share of press attention will go to all the “big movies” vying for Oscar nominations, several smaller films will also open in metro Chicago this month. For drama, seek out God’s Sandbox, a mesmerizing romance about a free-spirited woman who falls in love with a Bedouin. The recipient of five Israeli Film Academy nominations in 2002, God’s Sandbox will play at Facets Cinematheque on Fullerton from Dec. 16 through Dec. 22. For controversy, head to the new documentary Protocols of Zion, opening Dec. 9 at both local Landmark Theaters (Century Center in Chicago and Renaissance Place in Highland Park).
