<i>Follow Me</i> Review

Follow Me: The Yoni Netanyahu Story is a documentary on the life of Yonatan Netanyahu, an Israeli army commander who was killed during a hostage rescue mission at an airport in Uganda on July 4th, 1976.  I had never heard of the man before the film, but the film does a decent job giving background information of his life before going into what exactly happened on the day of the rescue mission.  The filmmakers were able to interview a lot of key people from Yoni’s family, girlfriends, fellow officers who served with him, and letters that Yoni wrote himself.  There is a lot of interesting information and worth a watch if you have any interest in the Uganda hostage crisis, the Israeli military, or Yoni himself.

Follow Me opens today at the Clearview’s Bala Theatre.
