A biopic of Hannah Arendt (Sukowa), a German Jew and Holocaust survivor assigned to cover the trial of Adolf Eichmann in 1961. But the conclusions see draws soon bring her into conflict with friends and colleagues alike.
There's plenty of zip and vibrancy in this account of Arendt and the Eichmann trial, but it gravely underestimates its audience's stomach for complexity.
