Senior Screen – The Zookeeper’s Wife (12A)
Directed by Niki Caro, USA, 2016, 127 mins
With Jessica Chastain, Johan Heldenbergh, Daniel Brühl
When the Nazis occupied Poland in 1939, Antonia Żabiński (Jessica Chastain) is running the Warsaw Zoo with her husband Jan (Johan Heldenbergh). This is the extraordinary, true-life story of how, after much of the animal sanctuary is destroyed, their zoo became a centre for Polish resistance, helping smuggle hundreds of Jews trapped in the Warsaw ghetto to freedom.
