Storyline Heading
The Zookeeper's Wife tells the account of keepers of the Warsaw Zoo, Antonina and Jan Zabinski, who helped save hundreds of people and animals during the Nazi invasion.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama - This fact-based WWII drama is a big starring showcase for lead Jessica Chastain. The other recognizable face, Daniel Bruhl, has a smaller supporting role. There is no language and violence is muted compared to similar historical dramas, but adult themes and a number of disturbing moments, including the endangerment of animals, are too intense for young children.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average ...has many lovely and moving moments but fails to capture the many layers of this unique story, relying instead on plainly-stated metaphors. ...an incredibly moving and important story, in and of itself.

NY Post Full Review
Good Her film dwells more in the aftermath of violence, as when Antonina tends to one of the people she shelters, a traumatized young rape victim (Shira Haas), by letting her care for a baby rabbit.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Above Average ...The Zookeeper's Wife is the sort of glossy historical drama that suppresses the darker aspects of the atrocities it chronicles for the sake of tasteful, crowd-pleasing affirmation. Even Nazi turpitude goes down easy here.
