Lore (portrayed by the stunning Saskia Rosendahl) must lead her three younger siblings on a perilous 500-mile journey through the Bavarian wilderness after the imprisonment of her Nazi parents during the regime's dying throes in rural Germany. Her own staunchly anti-Semitic feelings are put to the test along the way, as they encounter the enigmatic Thomas, a Jewish runaway who may be their best hope for reaching safety. Director Cate Shortland coaxes remarkable performances from her predominantly adolescent cast, making the award-winning "Lore" a tale of childhood’s end that provides a visually stunning glimpse into the damage wrought by hateful ideologies.
