*1/2 Orchestra of Exiles The story of how the violin virtuoso Bronislaw Huberman recruited Jewish musicians from across Europe to form the Palestine Symphony Orchestra in the 1930s offers rich, moving, and unfamiliar material. That should be a documentary trifecta. Yet writer-director Josh Aronson’s flaccid film squanders that material. Not coincidentally, it’s a textbook example of the idiocy of using historical reenactments. (85 min., unrated) (Mark Feeney)
