The Chosen

[New York : Jewish Media Fund, 1997?]

1 videocassette (107 min.) : sd., col. ; 1/2 in.

Two teenagers at the time of the Normandy invasion in 1944 are friends but they are divided by the same thing that unites them--their faith. Though both are devout Jews, there's a subtle difference. Danny is an Hasidic Jew, brought up to accept faith blindly by his father--an ultra-orthodox rabbi who rejects the 20th century for the special joys of centuries--old tradition. Reuven, on the other hand, has been brought up by his father who is a secular scholar, to question everything around him.
