Sophie Scholl: The Final Days
Source: Catholic News Service
Gripping true-life drama chronicling the final six days in the life of Sophie Scholl (Julia Jentsch), a 21-year-old German college student executed by the Nazis in 1943 after being arrested for distributing anti-war leaflets at her university, detailing her ordeal from her three-day cross-examination by a Gestapo interrogator (Alexander Held), to her mock trail and execution. Unvarnished by oversentimentality, director Marc Rothemund's film is a quietly powerful testament to bravery in the face of evil that examines themes of freedom of conscience and peaceful resistance to tyranny while imparting a strong anti-war message. Subtitles. Mature thematic elements, including suggested death by guillotine. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-II -- adults and adolescents. Not rated by the Motion Picture Association of America.
