In 1939 Poland, Antonina Zabiriska (Jessica Chastain) and her husband successfully run the Warsaw Zoo and raise their family in an idyllic existence. Their world is overturned, however, when the country is invaded by the Nazis and they are forced to report to the Reich's newly appointed zoologist (Daniel Bruhl). To fight back on their own terms, the Zabiriskis risk everything by covertly working with the Resistance and using the zoo's hidden tunnels and cages to save families from Nazi brutality.

Compelling Drama - The Zookeeper's Wife review by MH

Spoiler Alert
05/12/2017

An excellent film well scripted and full of incident. Though a harrowing story from an almost unbelievable period in European history it is so well told that it is gripping to watch and a rewarding reminder of those times. Good to know it is based on actual events and to be told about subsequent events in the characters' lives. Acting very good all round. Much enjoyed.

The Zookeeper's Wife - The Zookeeper's Wife review by HE

This was a totally different angle on the fate of the Poles in World War 2. How the zookeepers managed to hide and keep safe that number of Polish Jews from under the noses of the occupiers is astounding. I'm pleased to have seen it, though I don't particularly think it is a brilliant film.

Good Friday night film - The Zookeeper's Wife review by cM

Spoiler Alert
20/03/2018

Really enjoyed this movie, what made it good was it's true story and the fact you knew good people were risking their own lives to help them. One point I didn't get was when Germany occupied in other countries they used to also occupy the building so it made it bum on seat waiting for them to find the Jewish people hiding. Overall I enjoyed this movie to watch it twice,. The sound quality when they spoke wasn't too good then you'd turn volume up them the fighting gun fire boomed out so volume down again. Still I will recommend you to watch this movie
