Lemon Tree 2008 ★★½

Ok drama about a Palestine woman fighting for her inherited lemon grove when the Israeli minister of defence becomes her neighbour. The film takes it's time with the admittedly small story and succeeds in making it's points larger and tied in with the general conflict. What it does not do, however, is tell anything new or revelatory. Other than that it is well made and exactly the right duration for it's theme. Sadly, it does feel a little bland.
