Alone In Berlin (12A)

Berlin, 1940. The City is paralysed by fear.

Otto (Brendan Gleeson) and Anna Quangel (Emma Thompson) are a working-class couple living in a shabby apartment block trying to stay out of trouble under Nazi rule.

But when their only child is killed fighting at the front, their loss propels them into an extraordinary act of resistance. They start to drop anonymous postcards all over the city attacking Hitler and his regime.

If caught, it means certain execution. Soon their campaign comes to the attention of the Gestapo inspector, Escherich (Daniel Brühl), and a murderous game of cat-and-mouse begins.

Based on the incredible true story and best-selling book by Hans Fallada.
