Please Note: This film is no longer showing at Railroad Square Cinema

In this lavish British film from the director of TESTAMENT OF YOUTH, set in 1946 postwar Germany, Rachael Morgan (Keira Knightley) arrives in the ruins of Hamburg in the bitter winter, to be reunited with her husband Lewis (Jason Clarke), a British colonel charged with rebuilding the shattered city. But as they set off for their new home, Rachael is stunned to discover that Lewis has made an unexpected decision: They will be sharing the grand house with its previous owners, a German widower (Alexander Skarsgård) and his troubled daughter. In this charged atmosphere, enmity and grief give way to passion and betrayal. “Knightley gives it grace, heart and nerve; Skarsgård gives it smolder and sex appeal, and sometimes, dear reader, that is all a movie needs” —Ty Burr, Boston Globe. R. 108 Min.
