Movie Review: The Red Sea Diving Resort

Title:  The Red Sea Diving Resort
Genre: Historical Drama, Thriller
Release Date: July 31st, 2019
My Rating: ★★★★★
IMDB Rating: 6.5/10

Summary from IMDB: 

Israel's Mossad agents attempt to rescue Ethiopian Jewish refugees in Sudan in 1979.


I didn't know that this story was based on true events until I watched this movie. We follow a few brave souls who put their lives in danger and left their families behind in order to save Ethiopian Jews from being slaughtered by their own country. They saved 10's of thousands of lives by smuggling them through Sudan in a less than normal way, through the Red Sea Diving Resort that they took ownership of. 

It was a truly moving story that brought me to tears on a instances and at the end of the movie they play actual footage of the last refugees they saved coming off the plane and kissing the ground of the holy land. 

This movie is on Netflix right now for you to watch anytime, I would suggest you make the time to do so. You won't regret it.... but bring a box of tissue.
