1944. The war in Europe is headed rapidly toward a climax, and Hungarian leader Regent Horthy (Ben Kingsley), a German ally, has so far been able to spare his country from the atrocities of the Nazi regime. But as he struggles to maintain peaceful control in the face of his fraying relationship with Hitler, the menace of the Soviet Union at his doorstep and threats to his own family, his enemies begin moving thousands of Hungarians into ghettos and death camps. In the chaos, one courageous young man, emboldened by the woman he loves, will summon incredible courage to rescue his family by disguising himself as a Nazi officer.

Inspired by a true story, director Mark Schmidt’s suspenseful debut uses the grand scale of world war as backdrop to an intimate and uplifting story of love and sacrifice. By balancing a leader’s travails with those of an ordinary citizen (told through excellent performances by Kingsley and Irish actor Jonas Armstrong), the movie expertly conveys the human lives at stake here.
