I’m looking forward to seeing The Zookeeper’s Wife in theaters this Friday. If you did not know yet, the movie is based on real life events based on World War II. The trailer is heart-tugging, emotional, and definitely, a must see this month!
The Zookeeper’s Wife #TheZooKeepersWife
I’m a sucker for anything that is based off real events during World War II. Which was known as the most widespread and deadliest war in history. The Zookeeper’s Wife takes us into the life of a heroine who saved hundreds of lives during World War II. Just by watching the trailers and featurette’s I know that I will need to bring lots of tissues to the theater.
The real-life story of one working wife and mother who became a hero to hundreds during World War II. In 1939 Poland, Antonina Żabińska (portrayed by two-time Academy Award nominee Jessica Chastain) and her husband, Dr. Jan Żabiński (Johan Heldenbergh of “The Broken Circle Breakdown”), have the Warsaw Zoo flourishing under his stewardship and her care. When their country is invaded by the Germans, Jan and Antonina are stunned – and forced to report to the Reich’s newly appointed chief zoologist, Lutz Heck (Daniel Brühl of “Captain America: Civil War”). To fight back on their own terms, Antonina and Jan covertly begin working with the Resistance – and put into action plans to save lives out of what has become the Warsaw Ghetto, with Antonina putting herself and even her children at great risk.
