Hannah Arendt, NANCYS BAR-B-Q

The sublime Barbara Sukowa reteams with director Margarethe von Trotta (Vision, Rosa Luxemburg) for her brilliant new biopic of influential German-Jewish philosopher and political theorist Hannah Arendt. Arendt's reporting on the 1961 trial of ex-Nazi Adolf Eichmann in The New Yorker-controversial both for her portrayal of Eichmann and the Jewish councils-introduced her now-famous concept of the "Banality of Evil." Using footage from the actual Eichmann trial and weaving a narrative that spans three countries, von Trotta beautifully turns the often invisible passion of thought into immersive, dramatic cinema. An Official Selection at the Toronto International and New York Jewish Film Festivals, Hannah Arendt also co-stars Klaus Pohl as philosopher Martin Heidegger, Nicolas Woodeson as New Yorker editor William Shawn, and two-time Oscar Nominee Janet McTeer (Albert Nobbs) as novelist Mary McCarthy.

After movie... We'll gather briefly and walk to NANCYS BAR-B-Q for discussion, 301 S Pineapple Av Sarasota, FL 34236,[masked]-2271.

    sorry I missed the movie......I was in NY visiting my kids and granddaughters and then in Jacksonville to visit friends. I'm planning to see the movie soon. See you at the next one!! Have to agree with Anita and Ruthie about Nancy's BBQ - not a favorite of mine.

    I found the movie thought provoking but was not crazy about Nancy's but the company and discussion was wonderful

    Movie captured an interesting human dilemma where character stuck with their sincere opinion despite pressure from passionate opposition. Set design really captured the 1960 era. Liked the cast but some of the dialog?/acting? did not sound real; it sounded like actors acting IMHO. Enjoyed exciting action shots of character lying down and thinking. ;)

    Like the fun vibe of Nancy's BBQ. Food was very good and a good value except for undercooked cornbread.
