Alone in Berlin: Live from the Imperial War Museum

Posted 31 May 2017

On Monday 26 June we are 1 of 100 cinemas screening a one-off showing of Alone in Berlin Live from the Imperial War Museum before general release on 28 June.

Described by The Telegraph as a "powerfully moving true-life drama", Alone in Berlin follows Otto and Anna Quangel, a working class couple living in a shabby apartment block trying, like everyone else, to stay out of trouble under Nazi rule. But when their only child is killed fighting at the front, their loss drives them to 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 and a murderous game of cat-and-mouse begins. But the game serves only to strengthen Otto and Anna’s sense of purpose and a renewed love for each other. Slowly their drab lives and marriage are transformed as they unite in their quiet but profound rebellion...

Starring Two-time Academy® Award-winner Emma Thompson (Saving Mr Banks) and three-time Golden Globe-nominee and Emmy Award winner Brendan Gleeson (The Guard, Into the Storm), and directed by acclaimed actor turned filmmaker Vincent Perez (La Reine Margot).
