La Rosa Blanca
I am seldom affected by a movie to this extent, so last night when I saw Sophie Scholl - The Final Days , sleep did not come easy. It is a testament to courage in the face of evil, all the way down to the slide of the guillotine blade. It is also based on historical fact. The kind of movie and ideas that make me question my own courage and willingness to sacrifice it all when hard choices come up. This movie was nominated in 2005 for an Oscar in the Best Foreign Film Category. But, like so many quality products, it got lost in the distribution channels.
