The true story of Germany’s most famous anti-Nazi heroine is brought to life in this nominated film for Oscar’s Best Foreign Film. It traces the last six days of Sophie Scholl, the sole female member of the White Rose during the 2nd World War.

Sophie and her brother were captured while distributing anti-war pamphlets on the school campus. Following her arrest, the next six days became a wrenching journey from interrogation to a trail and her final sentence.

Julia Jentsch who stars as the courageous and strong Sophie exhibited much resilient and willpower that can be called a world class performance. This is especially so when you can feel both her fear and control during the riveting trial.

This is not only a history lesson, but one who reminds us of the strength and will of an ordinary student who stays firm on her beliefs. Definitely puts a lot of us to shame. Life can be a lot better if we face the sun – as what Sophie truly believes.

Sophie Scholl – Powerful and Provoking
