Sophie Scholl Review


Excellent
It's not easy, taking situations of high import and rendering them into drama without reducing its participants to saints and demons. Especially when one is confronted with such a one as Sophie Magdalena Scholl, the real-life heroine so radiantly portrayed by Julia Jentsch in the martyr drama Sophie Scholl - a smart, strident beacon for those fighting oppression, you could do much worse, and many films do.

In 1943, the 21-year-old Scholl was a student in Munich and member of the White Rose anti-Nazi resistance group. On February 18, Sophie and her brother Hans (Fabian Hinrichs) were arrested for distributing leaflets at the local university. On February 22, the two of them, along with a third member, were sentenced to death and executed the same day. Marc Rothemund's sober film is about what happens during that short stretch of time, how these three go from non-violent writers of pamphlets to facing down an apoplectic Nazi judge, fairly spitting with fury at the mere sight of those who would defame the Führer and handing out executions like candy.

The Edukators Review


OK
Is there any room for social activism in this day of lockstep capitalism? How does one militate against a system when one is too busy just trying to make ends meet? Indeed, the machinery of what one character in Hans Weingartner's The Edukators calls a "capitalist dictatorship" depends on the subjugation of the weak and the poor -- those mostly likely to revolt -- so that the rich can remain in power. It's not a revolutionary observation, but it remains a provocative one and forms the basis of Weingartner's seriocomic parable, which he co-wrote with Katharina Held.

In such an unjust society, what's a pretty girl to do? If you're the hapless Julie (Julia Jentsch), you scrape by as a waitress in an upscale restaurant, struggling to pay your rent, chafing all the while under the glare of your snide superiors. Julie's lot only gets worse when she's booted from her apartment and, soon after, from her job. Luckily, her boyfriend, Peter (Stipe Erceg) offers to put her up in his hovel -- one he already shares with Jan (Daniel Brühl), his close friend and political confidante.
