A Son by Any Other Name

by

War tears apart families, but in Lorraine Levy's drama The Other Son it brings together two families from opposite sides of the conflict. Joseph Silberg is an Israeli, just about to begin his national service in the Israeli military. His physical raises an alarming issue -- he has a different blood type from that of his parents. Joseph and his family soon learn the reason: the hospital sent the infant Joseph home to the wrong family. The Silberg's biological child was sent home with the Al Bezaaz family, who are Palestinian. Both families must learn to deal with a stranger in their home, and come to grips with the fact that their flesh and blood was raised as the enemy. The Webster Film series screens The Other Son at 7 p.m. tonight at the Moore Auditorium on Webster University's campus (470 East Lockwood Avenue; 314-968-7487 or www.webster.edu/filmseries). Admission is free.
