What if you could save the lives of hundreds of your fellow citizens, but doing so meant putting yourself, your family, and everything you've worked hard for in jeopardy? That's the question at the heart of Niki Caro's THE ZOOKEEPER'S WIFE, based on the non-fiction bestseller of the same name by Diane Ackerman.
Caro's film tells the incredible true story of Antonina (Jessica Chastain) and Jan Żabińska (Johan Heldenbergh), owners of the Warsaw Zoo in Poland. When the Nazis invade, Antonina and Jan decide to risk it all to help save as many of their fleeing countrymen as possible.
Featuring a supporting cast that includes Daniel Brühl (CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR) and Michael McElhatton (GAME OF THRONES), THE ZOOKEEPER'S WIFE tells a harrowing, inspiring tale of courage and hope in the face of overwhelming odds. - Alamo Drafthouse
