Hannah Arendt [Blu-ray]

A film by Margarethe von Trotta

ALSO AVAILABLE ON DVD

“ARDENT AND INTELLIGENT. Turns ideas into the best kind of entertainment.”
—A.O. Scott, THE NEW YORK TIMES

The sublime Barbara Sukowa reteams with Margarethe von Trotta (Vision, Rosa Luxemburg) for her brilliant biopic of influential German-Jewish philosopher and political theorist Hannah Arendt. Arendt’s reporting on the 1961 trial of Adolf Eichmann in The New Yorker—controversial for her portrayal of Eichmann and the Jewish councils—introduced her now-famous concept of the “banality of evil.”

Using archival footage of the trial and weaving a narrative that spans three continents, von Trotta beautifully turns the often-invisible passion for thought into immersive, dramatic cinema. Hannah Arendt co-stars Klaus Pohl as philosopher Martin Heidegger, Nicholas Woodeson as New Yorkereditor William Shawn, and two-time Oscar Nominee Janet McTeer as novelist Mary McCarthy.
