The latest film I have watched ...

The Zookeeper's wife is a rather interesting film and more so when we realise it is based on a  non-fiction account of its main characters - the keepers of the Warsaw Zoo during World War II Antonina and Jan Zabinski, who helped save around 300 people putting their lives at risk by using their personal villa and Zoo premises to shelter them in.  

I felt Jessica Chastain, Johan Heldenbergh and Daniel Brühl, not to mention several other actors. were convincing enough in their performances. If for nothing else it is a film which should be seen because it does celebrate two of many ordinary heroes.
