Operation Finale centers on the true story of Mossad agent Peter Malkin’s (Oscar Isaac) journey to Argentina to capture Nazi officer Adolf Eichmann (Ben Kingsley). The all-star cast includes Melanie Laurent (Inglourious Basterds), Joe Alwyn, Haley Lu Richardson (Columbus), Nick Kroll, and Greta Scacchi.
Along with the A-list ensemble and the material, Operation Finale is directed by Chris Weitz, who hasn’t helmed a film since 2011’s critically acclaimed A Better Life. Weitz also helmed The Twilight Saga: New Moon and the vastly underrated The Golden Compass, so he definitely knows how to direct an ambitiously scaled production. It’s also great, especially if you’re a lover of Hollywood history, to see MGM become a bigger player in the filmmaking game. Check out the trailer and tell us what you think!
Operation Finale opens nationwide September 14.
