    What a beautiful film! Starting off so idyllic and then quickly turning into such a compelling and moving tale of woe. Once again Jessica Chastain not only proves how truly great she is, but also how incredibly diverse in her acting skills. Compare this role to her also powerful performance in "Miss Sloane"; it reminds me of Meryl Streep's "Sophie's Choice" and then her follow-up role in "Silkwood". Highly recommended!

    Ratings for this film were average. The film is better than that. Jessica Chastain is one our most gifted actors and, albeit not one of her best, she's still very good in the part. The film, based upon a true story, sickens me to think that the holocaust ever existed and that Germans, whether civilians or military, tolerated such atrocity. There can never be enough movies like The Zookeeper's Wife made.

    This was based on a true story when the Natzies invaded Poland . The first part is very sad, but after that it shows how this courageous woman helped her husband save hundreds of Jews using her zoo tunnels. Its a movie worth buying

    I thought the movie depicted a good deal of realistic information regarding German take over and the Holicost. The treatment and persecution of Jews and the risk people took to hide them or get them out of Warsau. I thought it was good.

    This movie was an amazing recreation of a true story. Great acting by Jessica Chastain as Antonina Zabinska. This film reminds me of the movie "The Hiding Place". May we NEVER see another holocaust in our life time!

    Doesn't really stand out from other WW2 movies dealing with the holocaust and people sheltering those discriminated in that time. Seen one, seen them all I guess. Still worth a watch for Chastain and Bruhl.
