Genre: Art House, Biography, Crime, Drama and International
Conclusion: 4/5
As you can imagine this is a very powerful film. This is a story which I knew nothing about before watching. Brilliantly acted by Julia Jentsch who portrays Sophie Scholl and carries her performance all the way through the film. Filmed in chronological order which is very unusual. I did find it very moving at the end of the film where they showed real photos of Sophie Scholl, her brother and also Christoph Probst.
