In German-occupied Poland during the darkest days of World War II, a zookeeper and his wife managed to save the lives of hundreds of people, many of whom were detained in the Warsaw Ghetto, by giving them shelter and refuge on zoo grounds. This extraordinary true story is dramatized rather effectively in director Niki Caro's "The Zookeeper's Wife," based on the non-fiction book written by the naturalist writer Diane Ackerman.In mining the drama of WWII for cinematic stories, audiences have learned to be suspicious of those that look too pretty.Look past the sepia and the dreary title, "The Zookeeper's Wife" is riveting both inspiring and comes as a welcome reminder in this time of uncertainty that even in the face of astonishing evil, humanity and goodness can also rise to the occasion."The Zookeeper's Wife" is screening in Beirut-area theaters.
