ANGELIKA’S NOTE

Deemed by Indiewire as "extraordinary," Director Cate Shortland's 94% fresh rated (Rotten Tomatoes) film won the Audience Award at the 2012 Locarno International Film Festival. Both delicate and ominous, this World War II drama is anchored by a groundbreaking performance by Saskia Rosendahl in the title role. As Allied forces sweep across Germany, five children embark on a journey that challenges their notions of family, love and friendship.
