Hannah Arendt

Movie Summary

Director:
Margarethe von Trotta
Released:
Unknown
Rating:
Not Available
In the award-winning Hannah Arendt, the sublime Barbara Sukowa reteams with director Margarethe von Trotta (Vision, Rosa Luxemburg) for a brilliant new biopic of the influential German-Jewish philosopher and political theorist. Arendt's reporting on the 1961 trial of ex-Nazi Adolf Eichmann. Using footage from the actual Eichmann trial and weaving a narrative that spans three countries, von Trotta beautifully turns the often invisible passion for thought into immersive, dramatic cinema. An Official Selection at the Toronto International and New York Jewish Film Festivals, Hannah Arendt also co-stars Klaus Pohl as philosopher Martin Heidegger, Nicolas Woodeson as New Yorker editor William Shawn, and two-time Oscar Nominee Janet McTeer (Albert Nobbs) as novelist Mary McCarthy.

Metacritic Score

  • 80

    The Hollywood Reporter Deborah Young

    Von Trotta seems to borrow some of her subject's haughty disdain for compromise in a serviceable script that does the job of telling us who Hannah Arendt was like a good pair of so...

  • 50

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    It's long on important talk, gravitas and big ideas - but short on dramatic energy.

  • 50

    Variety Robert Koehler

    Von Trotta's Arendt biopic feels like a movie stuck in another era, stolid and rote, more of an outline for a dramatic treatment than the real thing.
