“A story of resistance… a story of salvation… “
The New York Times

“An exquisite marriage of personal, political and sensual storytelling”
Variety

“[A]n unconventional love story, tender but unsentimental.”
The Hollywood Reporter

Franz Rogowski (TRANSIT) stars in this story of a gay man who is persecuted for his sexual orientation under the post-WWII Allied occupation of Germany and Austria. While this may sound grim, Rogowski brings joy to the film in his character’s need to live an authentic life even under crushing circumstances. Free Member Monday—all members are invited to attend the June 13 screening for free.
