Operation Finale, a major motion picture starring Ben Kingsley and Oscar Isaac, tells the true story of Israel’s Mossad operation to hunt down and capture Holocaust evil mastermind Adolf Eichmann in 1960. The film premiered in New York earlier this week and will be released to the general public next Wednesday, August 29.
The film starts fifteen years after the end of World War II, when, acting on irrefutable evidence, a top-secret team of Israeli Mossad agents travel to Argentina where Eichmann (Kingsley) has been in hiding together with his family under an alias Ricardo Klement and execute an extremely dangerous abduction. In attempting to sneak him out of Argentina to stand trial in Israel while being pursued by the country’s right-wing forces, agent Peter Malkin (Isaac) is forced to engage Eichmann in an intense and gripping game of cat-and-mouse with life-and-death stakes.
