Synopsis

Hannah Arendt is a reporter for The New Yorker. After she attends the war crimes trial of Nazi Adolf Eichmann, she daringly chronicles the Holocaust in a way no one has ever done before and her work instantly becomes a scandal. She begins getting attacked by almost everyone—family and friends included. What follows is Arendt’s struggle to suppress her own painful memories of the past and how exile begins to define and derail her life.

  • 4 stars "Absolute must see!! Margarethe von Trotta when launching this film at 2012 TIFF said she wanted to show the world to get another perspective of German women at the time of WWII. Ms. von Trotta loves TIFF and said so. There are not enough films showing renditions of real middle aged women who are in the prime of their careers. Don't miss it!"
  • 5 stars "Outstanding performances about a fascinating woman who looked beyond the obvious. We were all riveted and want to go again to hear her words and thoughts out loud. Her observations have enhanced our thoughts and beliefs."
  • 1 star "Boring!"
