Schindler’s List
1993
*****
Director: Steven Spielberg
Cast: Liam Neeson, Ben Kingsley, Ralph Fiennes, Embeth Davidtz

A powerful true story about a German businessman and Nazi sympathiser who used his influence and his finances to save over a thousand Jews during WW2. This brilliant three-hour Holocaust epic is understandably somber but always enthralling. It’s strongly acted and beautifully filmed in black and white. A deserved winner of seven Academy Awards (best film, director, screenplay, cinematography, art direction, editing and score). Steven Zaillian adapted Thomas Keneally’s book.
