Summary A biopic of Hannah Arendt, the influential German-Jewish philosopher and political theorist. "Arendt's reporting on the 1961 trial of Adolf Eichmann in The New Yorker--controversial both for her portrayal of Eichmann and the Jewish councils--introduced her now-famous concept of the 'banality of evil.' Using archival footage from the Eichmann trial and weaving a narrative that spans three countries, von Trotta beautifully turns the often-invisible passion for thought into immersive, dramatic cinema"--Container.
