Summer nights at Tel Aviv's Banana Beach provide the atmospheric setting for this week's free MGM channel-sponsored Beach Movie Festival. Against the backdrop of the starry night sky and rumbling tide, movie enthusiasts can enjoy a selection of films covering a wide variety of genres. The event kicks off Sunday with a screening of family-orientated comic animation Madagascar. Monday's movie, Turn Left at the End of the World, offers an insight into the tensions existing between different immigrant populations in 1960s Israel. Set in a small town in the South, the film charts the developing bond between two girls of Moroccan and Indian origin. As the girls' friendship deepens, their conflicting communities begin to reach a mutual understanding. On Tuesday, Oscar-winning blockbuster Brokeback Mountain, a poignant depiction of the secret homosexual relationship between two cowboys, will play. Reese Witherspoon's portrayal of a ditzy, blonde lawyer in the comedy Legally Blonde 2 provides an opportunity for a lighter alternative on Wednesday, and action fans can enjoy the special effects-packed King Kong on Thursday. The movies begin at 8:30 each night.
