CBS Film Series presents Everything Is Illuminated

Elijah Wood starring as Jonathan, a young Jewish-American collector obsessed with his
family history, decides to journey to the Ukraine to find out more about the life of his
grandfather. Joining Jonathan is Alex, a language battering Ukrainian guide, his blind
grandfather, and his dog named Sammy Davis Jr. Jr.

What starts out as a journey to piece together one family’s story under the most
absurd circumstances turns into a surprisingly meaningful journey with a powerful series of
revelations. Join them as cultures clash and as the road leads where they want to go yet never
expected. They, and you, will emerge illuminated. ”Everything is Illuminated” begins
in goofiness and ends in silence and memory. A journey undertaken by three men and a dog into
the secrets of the past. The movie is based on a novel by Jonathan Safran Foer and
directed and written by Liv Schreiber.
