Lemon Tree

Sunday 15th February 1:00 PM


Hiam Abbass, in a terrific performance, plays Salma the Palestinian widow, who tends a lemon grove handed down through generations. But the Israeli Defence Minister moves in opposite and the lemon grove becomes regarded as a security threat. The based-on-a-true-story drama moves to the Israeli court, and to the hearts and minds of the central characters – including the Defence Minister’s wife Mira, who sympathises with Salma, and the young lawyer who takes on Salma’s case and soon falls for her.
