Jessica Chastain is one of those rare breeds of actors that goes from strength to strength. And I am pretty sure she picks the roles offered to her very carefully. Being an avid fan of true story-based movies, and also having a strong knowledge of WWII history, I knew immediately that I had to see the movie as soon as I read about it. And I was not let down at all. I thoroughly enjoyed the movie, which was well scripted although as I read somewhere that the intimate relationship of the protagonist, Antonina (Chastain) and the antagonist, Heck (Bruhl), is exaggerated in the movie. Nonetheless I loved it and highly recommend it and give it a full 10!
