THE ZOOKEEPER'S WIFE

THE ZOOKEEPER'S WIFE

Niki Caro · Czech Republic/UK · 2017 · 127 mins · 14A
IMDbRotten Tomatoes

Belief begets belief, and the faith that star Jessica Chastain and director Niki Caro (‘Whale Rider’) have turn this World War II drama into an emotional experience that is straight-ahead but satisfying. The story of Antonina Zabinska (Chastain), who along with her husband Jan (Johan Heldenbergh) hid some 300 Jews on the grounds of the Warsaw zoo they ran, may sound like a standard Holocaust tale of rescue and redemption, but even if there was such an animal, "The Zookeeper's Wife" is not it. As adapted by the veteran Angela Workman from Diane Ackerman's based-on-fact bestseller, this film has its share of Nazi atrocities, but it is not really about recreating wartime horrors. Rather, the film concentrates on the wrenching personal cost that being heroic extracted from all involved, how much it took out of everyone to survive years of life-and-death situations. --L.A. Times
