Europa Europa

A riveting and moving fact-based WWII Holocaust drama about a German-Jewish teenage boy who flees the Nazis and conceals his identity - only to find himself drafted into Hitler's army. Though German audiences gave it a luke-warm reception, it went on to become one of the most successful foreign releases in the US, and was Oscar-nominated for Best Screenplay adaptation.
