Movie propaganda

The true story of a young woman who did what few in Nazi Germany dared even think.

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 (Die fetten jahre sind vorbei)) in a luminous performance as the young co-ed-turned-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. Its sole female member, 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.
