Based on audaciously true events, 'Closer to the Moon' stars Vera Farmiga (Bates Motel) and Mark Strong (The Imitation Game) in beguiling performances as participants in one of the most confounding crimes ever perpetrated. In 1959 Bucharest, five high-ranking Jewish members of the Communist party staged a bank heist that baffled the repressive regime and left the public in an uproar. Their motives were never known. Having been captured, arrested, and sentenced to death, the unusual gang of so-called criminals is given one last punishment before facing the execution squad: reenact the heist for the benefit of a Communist propaganda film.
What follows is a darkly comic and sincerely heartfelt exploration of one of history's most unusual headlines, the effects of which still resonate to this day.
