Barbara Sukowa plays the eponymous lead character in this moving examination of the limits of human understanding when confronted with evil. Arendt, a stubborn political theorist and philosopher, as well as a German Jew, travels to Israel in the early 1960s to report on the trial of Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann for New Yorker magazine. The film's strength lies in unflinchingly depicting the dissolution of Arendt's peer group as a result of the articles' controversial nature and the ongoing ramifications of the Holocaust. Based on a true story.
