Sophie Scholl: The Final Days
The true story of a young woman who did what few in Nazi Germany dared even think.
The true story of Germany’s most famous anti-Nazi heroine is brought to thrilling life in the multi-award winning drama Sophie Scholl: The Final Days.
Academy Award Nominee for Best Foreign Language Film, Sophie Scholl stars Julia Jentsch in a luminous performance as the young coed-turned-fearless activist. Armed with long-buried historical records of her incarceration, director Marc Rothemund expertly re-creates the last six days of Sophie Scholl’s life: a heart-stopping journey from arrest to interrogation, trial and sentence.
In 1943, as Hitler continues to wage war across Europe, a group of college students mount an underground resistance movement in Munich. Dedicated expressly to the downfall of the monolithic Third Reich war machine, they call themselves the White Rose. One of its few female members, Sophie Scholl is captured during a dangerous mission to distribute pamphlets on campus with her brother Hans. Unwavering in her convictions and loyalty to the White Rose, her cross-examination by the Gestapo quickly escalates into a searing test of wills as Scholl delivers a passionate call to freedom and personal responsibility that is both haunting and timeless.
Sophie Scholl: The Final Days received three Lolas (German Oscars) including the Audience Award and Best Actress Award to Jentsch for her brilliant characterization of the title role. Jentsch also won Best Actress at the European Film Awards and the film also won two Silver Bears for Best Director and Best Actress at the 2005 Berlin International Film Festival.

although this movie is watched with subtitles, it is excellent and inspiring as well.

Very thought provoking. Her Christianity is subtle, but there, especially in the last hours. The movie causes you to ask yourself how far you would go to stand for the Truth in a society of lies and propaganda. The story of Dietrich Bonhoeffer is another great example of standing up for your beliefs

Sophie Scholl: The Final Days, tells the true story of Sophie Scholl, her brother Hans, and friend Christoph Probst. All were members of The White Rose, which was primarily a student group opposed to Adolf Hitler and his policies. Unfortunately, the three are arrested and given a sham trial, each receiving the death penalty (their beheading is not shown, but the heads do appear a few seconds later). The real issue in this film is its discussion value: Would we have the moral courage to (given the effectiveness of the Gestapo in rooting out those that did not approve of the Nazi Party, Adolf Hitler, and the circumstances of the war) stand for what is morally right or would we go along to live? Sophie and the others chose to live by a moral code, at the cost of their lives (and make no mistake, there were thousands of other Germans who also chose the moral path). This film will impact you deeply, so make sure you have tissue immediately available. We would not let anyone under Grade 8 view this film, as it is too intense. Enjoy!

An inspirational, thought provoking, moving and heart renching movie. Will challenge and inspire you as you watch the true story of Sophie and her brother and how they stood for what was right and paid with their own lives for it. The greatest act of love in giving their lives as they served the Lord Jesus as Christians. A masterpiece in filmaking, superb acting and directing. A must see for all Christians.
