Hiam Abbass had a superb supporting role in The Visitor and now I'm willing to check out anything she's in. This one looks good...
Lemon Tree is a drama based on the true story of a Palestinian widow who must defend her lemon tree field when a new Israeli Defense Minister moves next to her and threatens to have her lemon grove torn down.
It's possible that Abbass could garner some buzz for this role come awards season. At least I hope so!
