‘The Angel’ Trailer

Ashraf Marwan was many things: the son-in-law of Egypt’s President Nasser, a special adviser and confidant to his successor Anwar Sadat, and a spy for Israel during one of the most turbulent times in Middle Eastern relations. His movie-worthy adventures inspired Uri Bar-Joseph’s bestselling book “The Angel: The Egyptian Spy Who Saved Israel,” and now they’re the stuff of an actual movie, care of Israeli director Ariel Vromen.

Set in the late ’60s, post-Six-Day War, “The Angel” follows Marwan (Marwan Kenzari, soon to be seen as Jafar in the live-action “Aladdin” movie) as he is pulled into an ongoing conflict between such powers as Israel, Egypt, Syria, and Jordan, risking his own life in order to prevent yet another horrific conflict. And, yes, his code name was The Angel, and for apparently good reason.
