Sophie Scholl: The Final Days Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Filmmaker [[Performer~P226368~Marc Rothemund~marcrothemund]] utilizes long-buried historical records to reconstruct the last six days in the life of renowned German anti-Nazi activist Sophie Scholl ([[Performer~P305893~Julia Jentsch~juliajentsch]]) in an Academy Award-nominated feature that earned star [[Performer~P305893~Julia Jentsch~juliajentsch]] a Best Actress award at both the 2005 Lolas and the 2005 Berlin International Film Festival. The year is 1943 and [[Performer~P366810~Adolf Hitler~adolfhitler]]'s devastating march across Europe has resulted in the formation of the White Rose, an underground resistance movement born in Munich and dedicated to the fall of the Third Reich. Despite being one of the only female members in the White Rose movement, Sophie Scholl's conviction is strong and her will unbreakable. Eventually arrested by the Gestapo for distributing pamphlets on campus alongside her brother Hans, Sophie boldly maintains her ground by calling for freedom and personal responsibility and never once backing down even in the face of certain, inescapable death. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
