Adapted from Diane Ackermanâ€™s nonfiction book of the same name,Â The Zookeeperâ€™s Wife movie is based on the diaries of Antonina Ĺ»abiĹ„ski and is directed byÂ Niki Caro (Whale Rider,Â North Country).
The Zookeeperâ€™s Wife dramatizes a real-life story of heroism. The time is 1939. The place is Poland, homeland of Antonina Ĺ»abiĹ„ski (portrayed by Ms. Chastain) and her husband, Dr. Jan Ĺ»abiĹ„ski (Johan Heldenbergh, a European Film Award nominee for the Academy Award-nominated The Broken Circle Breakdown). The Warsaw Zoo flourishes under Janâ€™s stewardship and Antoninaâ€™s care. When their country is invaded by the Nazis, Jan and Antonina are forced to report to the Reichâ€™s newly appointed chief zoologist, Lutz Heck (Golden Globe Award nominee Daniel BrĂĽhl of the upcoming Captain America: Civil War). The Ĺ»abiĹ„skis covertly begin working with the Resistance â€“ and put into action plans to save the lives of hundreds from what has become the Warsaw Ghetto, with Antonina putting herself and her children at great risk.
The cast of The Zookeeperâ€™s Wife also includes Michael McElhatton (Game of Thrones); Iddo Goldberg (Defiance, The Courageous Heart of Irena Sendler); Goran Kostic (In the Land of Blood and Honey); and Israeli actresses Shira Haas, who stars in Natalie Portmanâ€™s feature directorial debut A Tale of Love and Darkness, and Efrat Dor, acclaimed for her work in the television series Achat Efes Efes, Asfur, and Mermaids.
