Monday at the Movies: THE ZOOKEEPER'S WIFE

The Monday at the Movies series for March will feature THE ZOOKEEPER'S WIFE, with an afternoon showing at 1:30, and an evening show at 7:00 pm

Based on a true story, THE ZOOKEEPER'S WIFE is just one of many heroic accounts of how a handful of people helped save hundreds of Jews during the war.  Antonina and Jan Zabinski run the Warsaw zoo with pride and affection, but the zoo is destroyed by the German invasion of Poland in 1939. The animals are slaughtered, but the zookeeper and his wife devise a plan to provide protection for Jews, risking their own lives and the life of their young son.

The Postscript tells that 300 people were saved by the Zabinskis in their zoo. They were eventually recognized by Yad V'shem for their righteous acts and defiance against the Germans. The Warsaw Zoo was rebuilt by the Zabinskis and remains open to this day.  

Jessica Chastain gives an extraordinary performance as Antonina, with Johan Heldenbergh as Jan Żabiński, and Daniel Brühl as Nazi officer Lutz Heck. The film is rated PG-13 and runs for two hours and six minutes.
