Based on Arthur Miller’s only novel, FOCUS centers on Lawrence Newman (William H. Macy) who is mistaken as Jewish in an anti-Semitic neighborhood in Brooklyn. He and his wife (Laura Dern) find that formerly friendly neighbors look at them askance while flaming an environment of anti-Semitism. FOCUS is as timely today as it was when the book was written in the 1940s.
