The Zookeeper’s Wife Trailer
“The real-life story of one working wife and mother who became a hero to hundreds during World War II.
In 1939 Poland, Antonina Żabińska (Jessica Chastain) and her husband, Dr. Jan Żabiński (Johan Heldenbergh), have the Warsaw Zoo flourishing under his stewardship and her care.
When their country is invaded by the Nazis, Jan and Antonina are stunned – and forced to report to the Reich’s newly appointed chief zoologist, Lutz Heck (Daniel Brühl).
To fight back on their own terms, Antonina and Jan covertly begin working with the Resistance – and put into action plans to save lives out of what has become the Warsaw Ghetto, with Antonina putting herself and even her children at great risk.”
Directed by Niki Caro and written by Angela Workman, based on the non-fiction book of same name by Diane Ackerman.
Produced by Jeff Abberley, Jamie Patricof, Diane Miller Levin, Kim Zubick and Julia Blackman.
The Zookeeper’s Wife is scheduled to be released on March 31, 2017.
