Showing on Wednesday, Feb. 4th, at 8 pm.

About the movie: 2005 Academy Nominee for Best Foreign Language Film, Sophie Scholl – Die letzten Tage is the true story of Germany’s most famous anti-Nazi heroine brought to thrilling, dramatic life. The movie stars Julia Jentsch (of recent cult fave Die fetten Jahre sind vorbei) in a luminous performance as the fearless activist of the underground student resistance group Die Weiße Rose (The White Rose). Armed with long-buried historical records of her incarceration, director Marc Rothemund expertly re-creates the last six days of Sophie Scholl’s life: a heart-stopping journey from arrest to interrogation, trial and sentence in 1943 Munich. Unwavering in her convictions and loyalty to her comrades, her cross-examination by the Gestapo quickly escalates into a searing test of wills as Scholl delivers a passionate call to freedom and personal responsibility that is both haunting and timeless.
