Hostages (Season 1) (DVD)
Directed by Omri Givon
When four masked men violently break into the Danon family home, taking them hostages, the family of four will be shaken to the core and their lives will change forever. Hostages is a pulse-pounding television series that became a sensation in Israel (and which was remade in the United States). In season one, the kidnappers demand that Yael, the matriarch of the family and a brilliant surgeon, kill the Israeli Prime Minister during a routine surgery. If the Prime Minister does not die, Yael’s family soon will. Desperate to save her family but keep her patient alive, Yael uses her wits to delay the decision until the last possible moment. During this terrifying time in which the kidnappers and hostages are bound together, a tangled web of secrets and lies are revealed.
"Original Israeli Series Is a Proper Edge-Of-The-Seat, Unguessable Thriller...This show shares the same attention to detail beloved by fans of 'The Killing' and other Nordic Noir dramas, and the claustrophobic, literally edge-of-the-seat stuff we've seen in 'Homeland' at its best."
"a riveting, Israeli home-invasion thriller that is full of surprises... each episode thrillingly unpredictable."
"Israel is the new Denmark when it comes to scintillating drama"
"This is a melodramatic nail-biter, with stunning performances from the entire cast. “Hostages” was made for a binge session — you’re going to have a hard time taking your eyes away."
