In the high-stakes world of political power-brokers, Elizabeth Sloane is the most sought after and formidable lobbyist in D.C. But when taking on the most powerful opponent of her career, she finds winning may come at too high a price.
A German soldier tries to determine if the Dutch resistance has planted a spy to infiltrate the home of Kaiser Wilhelm in Holland during the onset of World War II, but falls for a young Jewish Dutch woman during his investigation.
The first human born on Mars travels to Earth for the first time, experiencing the wonders of the planet through fresh eyes. He embarks on an adventure with a street smart girl to discover how he came to be.
War brews over Warsaw in 1939, and while life is still running its course, the Germans are slowly beginning to make their presence felt, with Hitler secretly preparing for the German invasion of Poland. Under those circumstances, the young couple of Jan and Antonina Zabinski continue their daily routine as owners and keepers of the Warsaw Zoo, but soon, as German Luftwaffe's Stukas hammer the Polish capital, their life's work together with the city, will turn to ashes. However, with the zoo liquidated for the war effort and many of its animals tragically perished, what was once an animals' zoo, will now serve as a sanctuary where Antonina, the humanist veterinarian, and Jan can hide the persecuted Polish Jews in plain sight until safe houses are found. That was Jan and Antonina's formidable, yet perilous plan, who regardless of the consequences, refused to wither before the Nazi menace, took matters into their own hands and sheltered 300 Jews under the Germans' noses.

Several scenes inside the Warsaw zoo show palm trees. At 52 degrees plus north latitude (a bit farther north than Calgary Alberta Canada) Warsaw Poland is way too far north to have palm trees. Therefore the zoo scenes were obviously shot at a more southerly location. See more »
I was raised with these people. Gentile, Jewish. It didn't matter to my family. It never mattered to me.

The Nazis were the first to outlaw vivisection; yet we are supposed to believe what this movie tries to tell us? Watch "The Greatest Story Never Told" and "Hellstorm". We have only been given one side of the story by Hollywood/the media. Remember - the victors write the history books. Now with the internet, we have access to the truth. We no longer have to depend on those with an agenda to tell us only one side of the story. Those two documentaries are available for free on youtube. So is "Marching To Zion". All fantastic films. Thank goodness for the internet, where we can do our own research.....but it is up to us to search for it.
