The true story of Germany's most famous anti-Nazi heroine is brought to
thrilling life in the multi-award winning drama Sophie Scholl: The Final Days.
Germany's official Foreign Language Film selection for the 2005 Academy Awards,
Sophie Scholl stars Julia Jentsch (The Edukators) in a luminous performance as
the fearless activist. Armed with long-buried historical records of her
incarceration, director Marc Rothemund expertly re-creates the last six days of
Sophie Scholl's life: a heart-stopping journey from arrest to interrogation,
trial and sentence.
In 1943, as Hitler continues to wage war across Europe, a group of college students mount an underground resistance movement in Munich. Dedicated expressly to the downfall of the monolithic Third Reich war machine, they call themselves the White Rose. One of its few female members, Sophie Scholl is captured during a dangerous mission to distribute pamphlets on campus with her brother Hans. Unwavering in her convictions and loyalty to the White Rose, her cross-examination by the Gestapo quickly escalates into a searing test of wills as Scholl delivers a passionate call to freedom and personal responsibility that is both haunting and timeless.
Sophie Scholl: The Final Days received three Lolas (German Oscars) including the Audience Award and Best Actress Award to Jentsch for her brilliant portrayal of the title role. The film also won two Silver Bears for Best Director and Best Actress at the 2005 Berlin International Film Festival.
