Tomato, tomahto...

My co-worker's sister was recently telling her friend, a rabbi, about a movie she had seen. It was the story of Jewish brothers in Nazi-occupied Eastern Europe who escaped into the Belarussian forests. There they joined Russian resistance fighters and worked to build a village in order to protect themselves and about 1,000 Jewish non-combatants. The rabbi was not familiar with the film but he was interested in seeing it. He asked for the name.


"It's called Deliverance," said my co-worker's sister. "You can get it at any video store."


She meant Defiance, of course.


I can't wait for chapter two of this story.
