Barbara Sukowa stars as Hannah Arendt, the German-Jewish political theorist, perhaps most well known for the controversy stirred up during her reporting for The New Yorker on the war crimes trial of Nazi Adolf Eichmann, during which she developed the idea of the “Banality of Evil.” In examining the life and work of Arendt, director Margarethe von Trotta “…answers a hunger for engagement with the life of an extraordinary mind.” The resulting film “…turns ideas into the best kind of entertainment.” (NY Times)
