Anyone who's been disappointed by the 1977 movie, Raid on Entebbe, will be captivated by the new documentary, Follow Me, which gives an account of the life and tragic early death of Yonatan "Yoni" Netanyahu, the commander of the rescue mission and the elder brother of Benjamin "Bibi" Netanyahu, the Prime Minister of Israel.
It's a profile in courage and leadership, with the filmmakers having gotten unprecedented access to Yoni's letters, both published and unpublished, family photos, and home movies. There are also interviews with former Israeli prime ministers Ehud Barak and Shimon Peres, the soldiers under Yoni's command in the elite Sayeret Maktal (commonly known as "The Unit"), and even his ex-wife Tirza "Tutti," who had never before agreed to speak about her relationship with Yoni.
