Adapted from the Tony Award-winning play of the same name, Oslo is based on a true story of negotiations between implacable enemies that led to the 1993 Oslo Peace Accords.
Starring Golden Globe-winner Ruth Wilson (HBO’s His Dark Materials, Mrs. Wilson) as Mona Juul, a Norwegian foreign minister, and Emmy-nominee Andrew Scott (Fleabag, Black Mirror) as Terje Rød-Larsen, a Norwegian sociologist and Mona’s husband, the film details the secret back-channel talks, unlikely friendships and quiet heroics of a small but committed group of Israelis, Palestinians and one Norwegian couple.
Rounding out the cast are Salim Daw (Fauda) as Ahmed Qurie, Finance Minister of the PLO; Waleed Zuaiter (The Spy, Ramy) as Hassan Asfour, Qurie's associate & PLO liaison; Jeff Wilbusch (Unorthodox) as Uri Savir, Director General of the Israeli Foreign Ministry; Igal Naor (Fauda) as Joel Singer, legal adviser to the Israeli Foreign Ministry; Dov Glickman (Shtisel, Stockholm) as Yair Hirschfeld, Israeli professor of economics; Rotem Keinan (Fauda) as Ron Pundak, Hirschfeld’s associate and fellow Israeli professor; Itzik Cohen (Fauda) as Yossi Beilin, Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister; Tobias Zilliacus (Thicker Than Water) as Jan Egeland, Norwegian State Secretary; Sasson Gabay (Sirens, Stockholm) as Shimon Peres, Foreign Minister of the State of Israel.
The film is written by Tony-winning writer of the stage play J.T. Rogers and directed by Bartlett Sher (Tony winner for South Pacific). Executive producers include Marc Platt (La La Land), Kristie Macosko Krieger (Bridge of Spies), and Steven Spielberg (Saving Private Ryan). DreamWorks Pictures, Marc Platt Productions, and Bold Films produce.
