Now nominated for five Oscars, including Best Picture.
The year is 1943. Rudolf Höss and his wife Hedwig strive to build a dream life for their family: their idyllic home, complete with a thriving garden, is separated only by a wall from the horrors of Auschwitz, where Rudolf, a commandant, oversees the Final Solution. As Rudolf's stature in the government grows, his family remains blissfully ignorant of the atrocities going on just outside their front door – and the fact that their patriarch is a key player in one of history's darkest chapters.
Told with masterful restraint by director Jonathan Glazer, aided by powerful performances and an utterly haunting soundscape from his Under The Skin collaborator Mica Levi, The Zone of Interest transforms Martin Amis's novel into a chilling and unforgettable treatise on complicity.
