One of the most acclaimed films from the 2023 Cannes Film Festival, this gripping courtroom drama from widely admired French filmmaker Cédric Kahn (Red Lights) delves into the sensationalized 1976 trial of Pierre Goldman, a left-wing activist defending himself against multiple charges, including murder during an armed robbery. Arieh Worthalter is mesmerizing as the accused, a revolutionary and the son of Polish Jewish refugees who steadfastly maintained his innocence, while the facts of his case became a flash point for a generation, raising questions of antisemitism and political ideology. Directed with vérité realism and pinpoint historical precision, The Goldman Case is a focused, distilled dramatization that’s both subdued and electrifying, communicating so much about the complexity of Jewish identity in recent European history. A 2024 New York Jewish Film Festival selection.
