Summary
A biopic of Hannah Arendt, the influential German-Jewish philosopher and political theorist. "Arendt's reporting on the 1961 trial of ex-Nazi Adolf Eichmann in The New Yorker -- controversial both for her portrayal of Eichmann and the Jewish councils -- introduced her now-famous concept of the 'Banality of Evil.' Using footage from the actual Eichmann trial and weaving a narrative that spans three countries, [director] von Trotta...turns the often-invisible passion for thought into immersive, dramatic cinema." -- Container
