The Lives of Others
An Oscar nominated political thriller set in 1980s East Germany. Captain Wiesler works for the Stasi, the secret police, and is asked to keep surveillance on a playwright, Georg Dreyman, whose loyalty to the party is under question. During the surveillance Weisler is slowly drawn into Georg's life and begins to question his own ideals.
directed by Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck
"Nothing could provide a more effective antidote to Ostalgie" Guardian ★★★★
"Already fêted, von Donnersmarck’s debut sets a closely focused, personal story against a more expansive backdrop of politics and power games a moving, enlightening tale of recent times." Empire ★★★★★
