What kind of man would it take to assassinate Hitler? Oscar-nominated director Oliver Hirschbiegel (Downfall) finds out in this searing yet heartfelt depiction of German resistance with the little-known true story of Georg Elser (Christian Friedel, The White Ribbon), a pacifist who acted alone in his scheme to bring down the Nazi ruler—which failed simply due to a slight change in schedule. Georg’s passion for music and torrid affair with a married woman (Katharina Schuttler) give a detailed portrait of this unlikely would-be hero. A Sony Pictures Classics release
