Labyrinth of Lies
Germany 1958: nobody wants to look back at the time of the National Socialist regime. Young public prosecutor Johann Radmann comes across some documents that help initiate the trial against some members of the SS who served in Auschwitz. Radmann oversteps boundaries, falls out with friends, colleagues and allies, and is sucked deeper and deeper into a labyrinth of lies and guilt in his search for the truth. But what he ultimately brings to light will change the country forever... Based on true events, Labyrinth of Lies takes an emotional and suspenseful look at a widely unknown chapter of the late 1950s which fundamentally changed the way Germany treated its past. Germany's Oscar entry in the 'Best Foreign Language Film' category at the 88th Academy Awards and featuring a standout performance from Alexander Fehling (TV series Homeland, Inglourious Basterds) and Friederike Becht (The Reader), Labyrinth of Lies is a gripping story of courage, responsibility and the struggle for justice.
