What it’s about
Based on a true story. Oskar Schindler, a German industrialist and member of the Nazi party, tries to save his Jewish employees after witnessing the persecution of Jews in Poland.
Why you should watch it
One of the most powerful stories in history, this film captures perfectly the contrast between the human ability to commit good and evil. Arguably no other story captures the horrors of the Holocaust and the fight to survive it better than this one.
And no person who watches this film will ever see the world in the same way again. The fact it is based on a true story makes it all the more harrowing.
If you are easily upset then this is likely not a film for you, but if you want to understand just how evil man can be if given the chance and just how good man can be if given the chance and just why the world fought so hard to stop the Nazis, this film will tell you all you need to know.
