    Review: Lebanese Civil War Drama 'Zaytoun' Starring Stephen Dorff

    How affected you are by the closing scenes of "Zaytoun" may depend on your pre-existing knowledge of the Lebanese Civil War and the Israeli incursion in the country.

    Few Hollywood actors of any generation, no matter how glorious their start, achieve consistent success.
