In 1943, Sophie and other members of the White Rose nonviolent resistance are distributing anti-war and anti-Nazi propapanda at the University of Munich when the Gestapo take her and her brother Hans into custody. In a film that re-creates the last six days of Sophie Scholl’s life, German actress Julia Jentsch gives a luminous performance as the student activist who is the most famous member of the anti-Nazi resistance movement.
