Starring two-time Academy Award nominee, Jessica Chastain, and Golden Globe nominee, Daniel Bruhl, The Zookeeper’s Wife—based on the best-selling book of the same name, which is in turn based on true life events—tells the story of Antonina and Jan Żabińska, who together managed Poland’s Warsaw Zoo during World War II. When Germany invades in 1939, bringing with it the new Reich, Jan and Antonina must come to terms with their new oppressive reality, all while balancing caring for their children and animal wards. But resistance is not futile, and Antonina and her husband find their own way to protect their family and community from the violence and hatred infiltrating their country.
