Sophie Scholl: The Final Days (in German)

Rating = B

Julia Jentsch does a fine job in the lead, and she is wonderful to look at — one of those people the camera loves. Other than that, however, the movie was somewhat boring to me — too didactic or something. Maybe a script drawn from transcripts of an interrogation is just not that interesting. It would have been nice to have learned more about the activities of the White Rose group than just what happened to Sophie Scholl, her brother, and another person in their final days.
