Movie Summary

Director:
Cate Shortland
Released:
2013
Rating:
Not Available
After being abandoned by their Nazi parents at the end of World War II, five German siblings embark on a harrowing journey across their war-torn country. Led by the eldest, 14 year-old Lore (Saskia Rosendahl, in a luminous debut), the children are forced to confront their parents' actions and the reality of the new world in which they find themselves. When the group encounters the mysterious Thomas, a Jewish refugee, Lore finds herself racked by conflicting emotions - her innate contempt for his kind and her burgeoning sexual desire. Lyrical, haunting, and unforgettable, LORE is at once a strikingly unique coming-of-age tale and an unforgettable look at the human legacy of the holocaust.
