The Zookeeper's Wife Blu-ray Review



A beautifully told and spiritually uplifting Holocaust story, Niki Caro’s The Zookeeper’s Wife tells a little known true story of resistance fighting during the six years of World War II in Poland buoyed by wonderful performances and an engrossing human interest tale of survival.

Thanks, Matt.

This is my lone July 4th purchase. Pre-ordered a while ago from Amazon. Hoping that they'll arrange a holiday delivery to me (actually, I'm expecting so..so I'll be disappointed if they don't).

Really looking forward to this. It's a blind buy but what I've gleaned of the story sounds fascinating.

I really enjoyed it, and not being familiar with the true story, I was edgy throughout the presentation.

I hope more people discover this fine film.

Jessica Chastain is my favorite actress going today so I'll definitely buy it some time this year when it's discounted down further.

Wow.

What a powerful film.

It is a great reminder of the way film can smack us upside the head about our history and, more importantly, the importance of the decisions we make as individuals and how those decisions make a difference (action/inaction, positive/negative). It really puts front and center the need for us to do right even when surrounded by evil.

Robert: Chastain was really, really good in this.
