The Pianist

“Roman Polanski, who as a child survived the Krakow ghetto, directed this Cannes Palme d’Or winner based on the 1946 memoir of Polish-Jewish pianist Wladyslaw Szpilman. The result is a film of riveting power and sadness, revolving around the modulated intensity of Adrien Brody in the title role. Calmly and passionately addressing his past for the first time, Polanski creates a huge, straightforward picture built of countless small, shockingly casual details of brutality, desperation, and kindness.” – Entertainment Weekly
