The Zookeeper's Wife is a powerful and emotional true story about a woman who was a hero to many during one of the most horrifying moments in history – World War II. This trailer literally gave me chills. I've watched hundreds of World War II documentaries and read a handful of books about the Holocaust. I read it to humble myself. I watch it to understand and sympathize. This film could not come at a better time. It's a reminder that there's always a light in the chaos. Check out the official The Zookeeper's Wife trailer.

The real-life story of one working wife and mother who became a hero to hundreds during World War II. In 1939 Poland, Antonina Żabińska (portrayed by two-time Academy Award nominee Jessica Chastain) and her husband, Dr. Jan Żabiński (Johan Heldenbergh of “The Broken Circle Breakdown”), have the Warsaw Zoo flourishing under his stewardship and her care. When their country is invaded by the Nazis, Jan and Antonina are stunned – and forced to report to the Reich’s newly appointed chief zoologist, Lutz Heck (Daniel Brühl of “Captain America: Civil War”). To fight back on their own terms, Antonina and Jan covertly begin working with the Resistance – and put into action plans to save lives out of what has become the Warsaw Ghetto, with Antonina putting herself and even her children at great risk.
