The film stars Denzel Washington, Colin Farrell, and Carmen Ejogo, and centers on the life of an idealistic defense lawyer (Washington) who finds himself in a tumultuous series of events that lead to a personal crisis and the necessity for extreme action. Roman J. premiered at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival on September 9, 2017, and began a limited release in the United States by Sony Pictures Releasing on November 17, 2017. The film went wide on November 22, 2017, and grossed just 13 million against its 22 million budget.

Motion Picture Drama, and the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role. [3] Plot [ edit] Roman J. Israel is a lawyer earning 500 a week at a small law firm in Los Angeles. In his two-partner office, Israel is responsible for preparing briefs, often focusing on the civil rights of their defendants, while William Jackson, the firm's founder and a well-respected professor, focuses on the courtroom appearances that Israel struggles with. Israel has spent years developing a brief that he believes will bring reform to the unfair use of plea bargaining to induce guilty pleas in the justice system. Though short on social skills, Israel is gifted with a phenomenal memory as well as strong personal convictions, which he has pursued at the expense of family. Jackson suffers a fatal heart attack. The firm is broke and will close, all to be handled by Jacksons former student, George Pierce. Pierce, who greatly admired Jackson and is impressed by Israels legal mind, offers a job at his own large firm. Israel rejects this offer, believing that Pierce is simply a greedy lawyer. Israel meets Maya during a job interview at a local activist network. The interview does not go well, but Maya asks him to speak at an upcoming meeting organizing a protest. Israel reluctantly takes up Pierce's job offer. Israel is a poor fit at his new firm, clashing with senior partner Jesse Salinas over a joke Salinas makes about battered women. After attempting to interest Pierce in his brief, Israel is disappointed to be assigned to handle clients. One such client is Derrell Ellerbee, a young man arrested for murder, who tells Israel that he is willing to divulge the whereabouts of the actual shooter, Carter "CJ" Johnson, and will testify against him. Israel goes behind Salinas' back to negotiate a plea deal with the district attorney. The prosecutor rejects his offer and hangs up on Israel after he insults her unsympathetic counter-offer. No deal is struck and Ellerbee is murdered as a snitch. In the same of an evening, Israel is berated by Pierce for mishandling of Ellerbee's case, then is mugged by a homeless man he attempted to help. He becomes downcast and cynical, illegally using the information he received from Ellerbee to anonymously collect the 100, 000 reward for Johnson's location. Israel indulges in luxuries he had previously eschewed. Pierce apologizes to Israel, stating that Israels dedication to justice has touched him, and that he is reorganizing the firm to take on pro bono cases handled by Israel. Pierce offers to work with Israel on his brief. Maya calls Israel to ask him out on a date, where she shares some of her struggles with idealism and thanks Israel for his inspiring her. Israel's new materialistic outlook make him unmoved by these developments. Pierce calls Israel to meet a new client arrested for murder, who turns out to be Johnson. Meeting Israel in jail, Johnson accuses him of divulging privileged communications to collect the reward money, and resolves to torment Israel with the threat of jail time or death. Israel suffers a breakdown in which he becomes a law unto himself becoming both the lawyer and the defendant in one. After judging his own actions as unlawful as the defendant, he renounces his greedy, self-centered worldview. Israel returns the reward, reconciles with Maya and Pierce, and tries to motivate them to pursue their inner sense of justice. He tells Pierce that he is turning himself in to the police for his crime. As he starts walking to a nearby station, but is shot and killed by one of Johnson's henchmen. In the aftermath, Maya is seen to be renewed in her activism efforts, while Pierce files Israels brief, in both their names, intent on continuing his efforts to reform the justice system.

Gilroy was then courting Denzel Washington to star. [4] It was reported on September 21, 2016 that Sony Pictures was closing a deal to distribute the film, with principal photography scheduled to begin in March 2017. [5] Gilroy's collaborators on Nightcrawler, cinematographer Robert Elswit and editor John Gilroy, worked with him again on the project. [6] On January 31, 2017, it was reported that Colin Farrell was in talks to join the cast. [7] As of February 28, 2017, Ashton Sanders was in talks to join as well, though he was unable to because of scheduling conflicts. [8] 9] In April 2017, Nazneen Contractor [10] and Joseph David-Jones [11] joined the cast. As of April 21, 2017, Inner City had begun filming in Los Angeles. [12] In June 2017, Carmen Ejogo joined the cast as a civil rights worker. [13] On June 22, 2017, the film was renamed Roman J. [14] Music [ edit] James Newton Howard composed the film's music, as he previously worked with Gilroy in Nightcrawler. The score is now released at Sony Classical. Release [ edit] The film had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 10, 2017, 15] 16] before its commercial release on November 17, 2017, initially limited, by Sony Pictures Releasing. [17] Following its festival premiere, the film was re-edited to tighten its pacing, with a dozen minutes (including one whole subplot) being shaved off the final runtime, and a key scene regarding Colin Farrell 's character being shifted from the third act to earlier in the film. [18] Reception [ edit] Box office [ edit] The film took in 61, 999 from four theaters in its limited opening weekend, for a per-venue average of 15, 500. [19] It then expanded to 1, 648 theaters the following Wednesday, alongside the openings of Coco and The Man Who Invented Christmas. It was projected to gross around 4 million over its five-day weekend but ended up debuting at 4. 5 million finishing 9th at the box office. [20] Critical response [ edit] On review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, the film has an approval rating of 53% based on 170 reviews, with an average rating of 5. 76/10. The website's critical consensus reads, Intriguing yet heavy-handed, Roman J. makes the most of ? but never quite lives up to ? Denzel Washington's magnetic performance in the title role. 21] On Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating to reviews, the film has a weighted average score 58 out of 100, based 41 critics, indicating "mixed or average reviews. 22] Audiences polled by CinemaScore gave the film an average grade of "B" on an A+ to F scale. [20] Writing for Rolling Stone, Peter Travers gave the film 3 out of 4 stars, praising Washington and writing, In no way is his performance a stunt. Washington digs so deep under the skin of this complex character that we almost breathe with him. It's a great, award-caliber performance in a movie that can barely contain it. 23] Richard Roeper of the Chicago Sun-Times gave the film 2 out of 4 stars. He also highlighted Washington, but criticized the narrative, saying. Roman J. has pockets of intrigue, and writer-director Gilroy and Washington have teamed up to create a promising dramatic character. We just never get full delivery on that promise. 24] In his review for Empire, Simon Braund summarized the political motives in the film viewed as a legal thriller stating, It (Roman's idealism) illustrates succinctly how at odds with the modern world Roman Israel is. A brilliant legal mind, trapped in the body of a twitchy social misfit, he has all the hallmarks of a true genius-savant ? the interpersonal skills of a yeast cell, dress sense of an Open University lecturer circa 1973 and an unshakeable conviction that justice for the poor and dispossessed is a cause worth fighting for. To this deeply unfashionable end, hes spent decades toiling in the shadows at a tiny law firm, making trouble for The Man while compiling a vast, unwieldy brief he hopes will, one day, set the American legal system on its ear. 25] Accolades [ edit] In popular culture [ edit] In the Family Guy episode "Shanksgiving" it is reference

Onsdag 16. oktober ble et stort antall oliventrær satt i brann i den lille landsbyen Burin like sør for Nablus i Palestina. Dette skjedde mens bøndene skulle høste sine oliven. De ble angrepet av israelske bosettere da de forsøkte å slukke brannen. Ingen bosettere ble arrestert, og hendelsen har ikke blitt påtalt internasjonalt. Siden 30. mars 2018 og frem til 30. september i år har israelske soldater drept 309 palestinere som har deltatt i protestmarsjene langs grensegjerdet på Gazastripen. Ifølge rapporter fra israelske og palestinske organisasjoner, ble 56 palestinske barn drept av israelske styrker i året som gikk, 45 av dem på Gazastripen. Også dette uten at det vekker synderlige reaksjoner ? heller ikke i Norge. På det overordnede plan har Israel annektert Øst-Jerusalem og Golanhøydene og har varslet annektering av Jordandalen ? også dette uten at det får prinsipielle konsekvenser. Initiativet ?Forsvar folkeretten? lanseres av 44 jurister med forskjellig faglig bakgrunn. Initiativet offentliggjøres også internasjonalt om kort tid. Som norske jurister har vi over tid sett med bekymring på Norges unnfallenhet overfor Israels brudd på folkerett, menneskerettigheter og humanitærrett. Mens Israels alvorlige og vedvarende brudd kun kritiseres verbalt, utsettes andre land som bryter internasjonal rett, for reaksjoner fra det internasjonale samfunnet gjennom konkrete handlinger og sanksjoner. I den norske regjeringenes politiske plattform heter det at land som alvorlig og vedvarende bryter folkeretten, skal møtes med økonomiske og politiske sanksjoner. Som en del av sin utenrikspolitiske identitet, legger regjeringen samtidig avgjørende vekt på vern av folkeretten, demokrati og menneskerettighetene. Ikke minst kommer dette til uttrykk i disse dager i forbindelse med regjeringens omfattende valgkampanje for å få sete i FNs sikkerhetsråd for perioden 2021?2022. Som det eneste landet i verden er imidlertid Israel gitt en særstatus i regjeringens Granavoldenplattform ved at regjeringen skal ?legge til rette for styrket forsknings- og utviklingssamarbeid, handel, turisme og kulturutveksling med Israel?. Norge velger å gi Israel unike privilegier til tross for sine økte folkerettslige brudd. Denne holdningen som norske myndigheter inntar overfor alvorlige krenkelser av grunnleggende humanitære og folkerettslige prinsipper, bidrar til å legitimere Israels politikk basert på okkupasjon og kolonisering av palestinsk jord, og kollektiv avstraffelse av palestinere på Gazastripen. Folkeretten er målestokk for legitimiteten til internasjonale handlinger. Hvis vi ikke er konsekvente i vårt forsvar av internasjonal rett, vil den undergraves og miste sin kraft som vern av grunnleggende menneskerettigheter. Initiativtakerne til ?Forsvar folkeretten? er av den oppfatningen at norske myndigheter må gjenreise respekten for folkeretten og arbeide for at Israels vedvarende og grove brudd på de internasjonale kjørereglene skal ikke skal honoreres, men møtes med sanksjoner. Våre spørsmål til den norske regjeringen er følgende: 1. Norge tar i dag del i 26 sanksjonsregimer og restriktive tiltak. Flere av sanksjons- og tiltaksregimene inneholder bestemmelser om våpenembargo. Sammenlignet med disse, hvordan begrunner regjeringen Israels straffefrihet til tross for alvorlige og vedvarende brudd på folkeretten? 2. Utenriksministeren har uttalt at Norge ikke har tradisjon for å innføre unilaterale sanksjoner mot andre stater. Hva er det som hindrer Norge i å ta initiativ overfor andre land, EU eller FN til å sanksjonere Israel? Vi ser frem til å få et svar.

Advocate newark. 8 min. læsetid Den internationalt anerkendte menneskerettighedsaktivist, Lea Tsemel, gæstede København i forbindelse med CPH:DOX filmfestival, hvor filmen ‘Advocate, om hendes liv som menneskerettighedsadvokat, blev vist. Asbjørn Nielsen har set filmen, og snakket med den israelske advokat for Solidaritet. Af Asbjørn Nielsen I det kaos af kunstnere, instruktører, journalister og gæster, der er Copenhagen Dox Filmfestival (CPH:DOX) kan man nemt overse Lea Tsemel. Kun omkring 160 cm høj når hun blot de fleste til skuldrene. Øjnene og det faste smil fanger dog omgående ens opmærksomhed. Og størrelsen skal man ikke lade sig narre af. Hun er advokat, og udfører dagligt et af de vanskeligste hverv, der findes: at forsvare palæstinensere i en israelsk retssal. ”Der er tre slags Palæstinensere ”, forklarer hun. ”Dem, der er bosat i Israel, og i princippet har et israelsk pas. Dem, som bor i områder tilknyttet eller besat af Israel, herunder Golan-højderne og Jerusalem. Og endelig dem, der bor på Vestbredden eller i Gaza. ” Uanset kategorien bliver palæstinensere behandlet som andenrangs borgere, og er i israelske retssale udsat for diskrimination, før deres sag overhovedet begynder, understreger hun: ”En retssag mellem en palæstinenser og en israeler er altid til israelerens fordel. Fra begyndelsen bliver palæstinensere stemplet som terrorister, og der er et enormt pres fra det israelske samfund for, at retten skal give dem den hårdest mulige straf. Der er for tiden en voldsom eskalering i det og en total mangel på forståelse af, hvorfor nogle udøver modstand mod besættelsen. Uanset om det er imod bosættere, infrastruktur eller sågar soldater, hvilket ellers er acceptabelt i henhold til international lov. ” ”Før i tiden blev jeg omtalt som forsvarer for terrorister, nu til dags er det ændret til menneskerettigheds-advokat, og det bærer en vis prestige med sig” Lea Tsemel Født i Haifa, 1948 Tidligere elev af den israelske menneskerettighedsadvokat Felicia Langer, som tog hende i lære i 1971 Har modtaget en række menneskerettighedspriser for sit arbejde som advokat, der også har omfattet at forsvare forsøgte selvmordsbombere. Diskriminerende paragraffer Siden hun tilsluttede sig den anti-zionistiske organisation Matzpen i starten af 70erne, har Lea Tsemel udkæmpet en evigt tabende og bestandigt opskruet kamp imod et retssystem, der i dag har mere end 30 forskellige paragraffer, som diskriminerer palæstinensere. Som advokat har hun forsvaret alle ? selvmordsbombere, aktive medlemmer af PLO og tilfældige ofre for bosætter-vold. I dag er flere af hendes klienter yngre end nogensinde, fordi Israel systematisk anholder og fængsler børn ned til 12 år, hvoraf flere har fået domme på mere end 10 års fængsel. Hun er kendt for aldrig at takke nej til disse sager, hvilket i det stærkt fundamentalistiske og opdelte Israel har vundet hende et utal af fjender og daglige trusler. ”Der er tre slags Palæstinensere: De der er bosat i Israel og i princippet har et israelsk pas. De som bor i områder tilknyttet eller besat af Israel, herunder Golan-højderne og Jerusalem. Og endelig dem der bor på Vestbredden eller i Gaza. ” Advocate Lea Tsemel er i dag hovedpersonen i dokumentaren Advocate, der følger hendes arbejde som forsvarer for en 13-årig dreng anklaget for mordforsøg ? og en ældre kvinde anklaget som selvmordsbomber. ”Før i tiden blev jeg omtalt som forsvarer for terrorister, nu til dags er det ændret til menneskerettigheds-advokat, og det bærer en vis prestige med sig” Prestigen er dog en hul gestus, for hverken ligebehandling eller respekt for palæstinenseres menneskerettigheder eksisterer i det israelske retssystem, siger Lea Tsemel: ”I filmen følger vi mit arbejde med en sag om en trettenårig dreng anklaget for mordforsøg, efter at han og en ældre kammerat gik ind i en bosættelse med en kniv for at skræmme bosætterne. Hans ven blev skudt og dræbt, mens han selv blev kørt ned med forsæt og pådrog sig kraniebrud og et par trykkede ribben. Det er vigtigt at huske, at havde han været jøde og gjort det mod en palæstinensisk landsby, var han formentlig ikke blevet fængslet, men kun tiltalt for at volde personskade. Diskriminationen er til stede, allerede før retssagen begynder. ” Et klip fra dokumentarfilmen Advocate, hvor Lea Tsemel som forsvarer for en kvindelig selvmordsbomber svarer journalister under retssagen. Foto: Philippe Bellaiche Vrede og harme Adspurgt til hvad der får hende til at tage tilsyneladende håbløse sager igen og igen, svarede Lea Tsemel i et interview med Al-Jazeera for tre år siden: ”Vrede og harme. Selvfølgelig er jeg stadig vred, og det er i stigende grad det, som driver mig. Lige så vigtigt som retssagerne er de forhold, som palæstinensere lever under i fængsel, såvel som deres høje antal fanger og den måde, det påvirker samfundet. Vi har at gøre med tre generationer, som ofte ikke kender andet end fængsel. Alle har et familiemedlem eller en tæt ven, der sidder i fængsel, måske afsoner mange år. ” Selv om løsladelse af fanger blev påpeget i Oslo-aftalen i 1990erne, kom der aldrig nogen generel amnesti. ”Forholdene for fangerne bliver i stigende grad forværret som følge af den udbredte holdning i det israelske samfund, at de bør berøves alle rettigheder eller slet og ret henrettes. Nu indespærres mange uden en retssag. Der er ingen medfølelse eller nåde at finde, der er så meget had i vores samfund. ” Mange kritikere kalder i dag Israel for en apartheidstat. Hvad siger du til det? ”Jeg kunne ikke være mere enig, det er jo tydeligt for enhver, selv hvis man ikke kender til diskriminationen i retssager, lovgivning og strafudmåling. ” Hårdt mod hårdt Vi ser i Advocate, hvordan Lea udtaler sig til pressen, og uden omsvøb angriber det diskriminerende retssystem, og sætter hårdt mod hårdt. Den fængslende fortælling er et indblik i det stadig mere opdelte, israelske samfund. Tilråb og trusler hører til Leas hverdag. Fra hendes første aktiviteter i det anti-zionistiske Matzpen får vi indblik i hendes livsbane fra frivillig i den israelske hær under Seksdageskrigen til hendes transformation til hårnakket forsvarer af PLO-medlemmer og terrorsigtede palæstinensere. ”Internationalt pres på Israel er det eneste, som kan gøre en reel forskel. Særligt pres fra EU og USA er vigtigt, selvom det er svindende med Trumps seneste anerkendelse af Golan-højderne som en del af Israel. Det fungerer som en belønning for Netanyahu og zionisterne, som kan se, at der ingen konsekvenser er af det, de gør, tværtimod, ” mener Lea Tsemel. Trailer for filmen ‘Advocate Dobbeltmoral “Når man ankommer til Tel Aviv lufthavn som turist, bliver man udspurgt om næsten alt og må udlevere sin telefon, facebook og email til gennemsyn. Er man ærlig og fortæller, at man er der for at besøge palæstinensiske områder eller være aktiv mod besættelsen, bliver man typisk deporteret og udvist i flere år. ” “Men ingen stiller spørgsmål til unge mænd og kvinder, der lander i andre lande med israelske pas. Hvis andre lande begyndte at stille spørgsmål som: ‘Har du aftjent værnepligt i hæren? Har du været aktiv i de besatte områder? Har du skudt mod civile og børn? Så ville de formentlig tænke sig mere om, før de skød folk ned eller understøttede besættelsen. ” Både Lea Tsemel og filmen om hendes arbejde er et gribende møde med de juridiske instanser i besættelsen af Palæstina, og er et indblik i, hvordan en apartheid-stat fungerer. Sidst men ikke mindst er det historien om, hvordan ildsjæle og en ukuelig vilje til at gøre det, som er ret, stadig lever, i selv det mest hadske samfund. ‘Advocate er instrueret af Rachel Leah Jones, og vises på diverse filmfestivaler i foråret. Asbjørn Nielsen har været fredsvagt på Vestbredden for International Solidarity Movement, og har skrevet speciale om statsløse syrisk-palæstinensere. Han sidder i redaktionen for Konfront.

As host of this years Eurovision, Israel has tried to use the hugely popular song contest to present itself as a tolerant and cosmopolitan country that is winning increased acceptance on the world stage. But despite Israels best branding efforts, the kitschy festival is clouded in political conflict and controversy. Palestinian militants bombarded southern Israel with hundreds of rockets during a bloody round of fighting last week, raising concerns that the contest could be disrupted by violence. The Palestinian-led boycott movement against Israel has been urging tourists and artists to stay home. Even an Israeli promotional video for the contest appears to have backfired, drawing accusations of anti-Semitism and misogyny. “Theres definitely more controversy around Israels contest than past ones, ” said John Kennedy OConnor, who wrote the official history of Eurovision. Eurovision debuted in the wake of World War II to heal a divided continent. Over the years, the earnest show of European unity has mushroomed into a campy, over-the-top spectacle that brings together acts from 41 countries, including those with little or no connection to Europe, such as Turkey and Australia. In the final round, TV viewers choose the winner by casting votes via text messages. Israel earned the right to host after Israeli singer Netta Barzilai carried off last years prize with her spunky pop anthem “Toy. ” Perhaps anticipating controversy, organizers decided to hold the contest in Tel Aviv ? Israels freewheeling cultural capital known for its beaches and gay-friendly lifestyle ? instead of contested, conservative Jerusalem. OConnor described hosting Eurovision as a “golden opportunity” for a small country like Israel trying to sell itself as a holiday destination. “Israel can take control of its image and say ‘look, were bringing nations together and putting on a great show, ” he said. But almost immediately, the Palestinian-led BDS movement, which promotes boycotts, divestment and sanctions against Israel, began calling on performers to pull out of the contest over Israels treatment of the Palestinians. Dozens of European artists, led by former Pink Floyd frontman Roger Waters, signed a letter calling for the contest to be moved elsewhere. Demonstrations erupted outside television studios at a number of national finals. Boycott activists stormed the stage during Frances semi-final round. Icelands performers have vowed to leverage their platform to show the “face of the occupation. ” Although the none of the national broadcasters or performers have quit the competition, the BDS movement has drawn international attention to topics that Israel had hoped to avoid. Adding to tensions, the contest coincides with the day that Palestinians commemorate as the anniversary of their “nakba, ” or catastrophe, when hundreds of thousands fled or were forced from their homes in the 1948 war that led to the establishment of Israel. Scores of demonstrations to mark the day of mourning and protest Eurovision are planned throughout the country and in the Palestinian territories. This week, a left-wing Israeli activist group hung a banner on a Tel Aviv highway promoting political tours of the occupied West Bank. Split between a beachfront lifeguard station and an Israeli military watchtower, the billboard reads, “Dare to Dream of Freedom, ” a play on this years Eurovision motto. Palestinian factions in Gaza are mobilizing a mass march toward the Israeli border fence on May 15. Last years Nakba Day protests in Gaza, following the opening of the U. S. Embassy in contested Jerusalem, led to the deaths of over 60 Palestinians by Israeli fire. Israel says it is defending its border and accuses Hamas militants of using the crowds as cover for attacks. Whether it was falling rockets, mounting boycott calls or simply prohibitive ticket and travel costs for some European fans, the Tel Aviv Hotel Association said the contest has attracted far fewer foreign visitors than expected. The associations director, Oded Grofman, estimated that hotels would see around 5, 000 visitors, well below Eurovisions forecast of 15, 000. Portuguese tourism authorities claimed last years songfest in Lisbon drew 90, 000 people. Grofman said the difficulty of travel to Israel, combined with online box office glitches, inflated room rates and steep ticket prices all helped drive down demand. Although last weeks Gaza fighting resulted only in minor cancellations, he said political volatility may have dissuaded all but the most loyal fans. “All the time we get to the same our being a normal country depends on the choices of Hamas, ” said Izhar Cohen, who won Israels first Eurovision crown in 1978. Cohen was set to perform alongside other former winners at a prelude concert in central Israel last week, but the event, which hoped to draw thousands of fans, was postponed until June due to Palestinian rocket fire. Israel has poured over 5. 6 million into Eurovision security, “significantly more” than previous years, according to Sharon Ben-David, the Eurovision spokeswoman for Israels public broadcast station. Tens of thousands of police will patrol the contest throughout the week. Neil Farren, a Eurovision commentator live-blogging contest preparations in Tel Aviv, said the visibly heightened security and briefings on air raid sirens and bomb shelters likely rattled some contenders, who have so far remained tight-lipped about the political situation. During a testy press conference last week, an Israeli moderator cut off a reporter who tried to ask performers about their fears of Palestinian rocket attacks, insisting business would continue as usual. A promotional musical video released Friday by the contests Israeli television hosts tried to tackle the challenges head-on, poking fun at the countrys stereotypes as a land of war and occupation, religious tensions and exorbitant prices. But critics say the tongue-and-cheek video went too far, promoting anti-Semitic tropes and glossing over the conflict with the Palestinians. At one point, the host refers to the countrys “lovely beaches, ” but the English subtitles say “lovely bitches. ” It was not immediately clear whether it was an error or an attempt to make fun of his accent. The songfest has weathered storms of controversy before, said OConnor, the Eurovision historian. When Azerbaijan hosted in 2012, mass protests against government repression erupted at the event. Russia faced boycott calls over its anti-gay laws 10 years ago. Northern Ireland hosted at the height of its violent sectarian violence. Former Soviet republics often try to skirt the contests ban on politics through veiled jabs at Russia in their tunes.
