Based on the Tony Award-winning play about the real, secret Israeli-PLO peace talks that took place in the early ’90s, this is just about the best a movie can get when it’s largely nothing but a small group of people in a room arguing with each other. Adapted by JT Rogers from his own play and directed by Bartlett Sher (who directed it on Broadway), Oslo is a fascinating peek behind the curtain, and not only is it absolutely riveting, it’s beautifully shot and acted (including Ruth Wilson and Andrew Scott as the married couple that facilitated the talks).

4.5/5 stars
