A Holocaust film with a difference as it focuses on a perpetrator. Hanna (Kate Winslet, who won the Oscar for best actress for this role) has an affair with an adolescent Michael ( David Kross) in 1950’s Germany. The affair abruptly ends and it is a decade later when Michael sees Hanna unexpectedly again when she is on trial. He knows of a secret that if revealed may save Hanna but will he and should he reveal it? The film is based on the novel by Bernard Schlink and is a morally complex story, a bold challenging and emotionally engaging work.
