Netflix’s official synopsis reads, “Operation Finale details the daring and brilliantly executed mission to capture Adolf Eichmann, one of the chief architects of the Holocaust. Fifteen years after the end of World War II, Israel’s intelligence agency Mossad and security agency Shin Bet—led by the tireless and heroic agent Peter Malkin—launched a daring top-secret raid to capture the notorious Eichmann, who had been reported dead in the chaos following Nazi Germany’s collapse but was, in fact, living and working in a suburb of Buenos Aires, Argentina under an assumed identity along with his wife and two sons. Monitoring his daily routine, Malkin and his operatives plot and execute the abduction under the cover of darkness just a few feet from Eichmann’s home. Determined to sneak him out of Argentina to stand trial in Israel, Malkin and Eichmann engage in an intense and gripping game of cat-and-mouse.”

The 2018 flick stars Ben Kingsley (Schindler’s List), Oscar Isaac (Star Wars: The Last Jedi), Lior Raz (The Kindergarten Teacher), Melanie Laurent (Inglorious Bastards), Nick Kroll (Sing), Joe Alwyn (The Favourite), Haley Lu Richardson (Five Feet Apart), Michael Aronov (The Drop), Ohad Knoller (Munich) and Torben Liebrecht (Altered Carbon).
