Please join us for a post-film discussion moderated by Ashley Vanderwaren.

This special screening of THE ZOOKEEPER’S WIFE is part of our new Books to Film series. Each screening will be followed by a book group style discussion. All lovers of books, book group members, and individuals passionate about books adapted for the screen are encouraged to join us for these combined literary/film events, and to participate in a lively discussion.

The real-life story of a working wife and mother who became a hero to hundreds during World War II. In 1939 Poland, Antonina Żabińska (Jessica Chastain) and her husband, Dr. Jan Żabiński (Johan Heldenbergh), have the Warsaw Zoo flourishing under his stewardship and her care. When their country is invaded by the Germans, Jan and Antonina are stunned - and forced to report to the Reich's newly appointed chief zoologist, Lutz Heck (Daniel Brühl). To fight back on their own terms, Antonina and Jan covertly begin working with the Resistance - and put into action plans to save lives out of what has become the Warsaw Ghetto, with Antonina putting herself and even her children at great risk.
