Controversial filmmaker Roman Polanski shores up his position as one of Europe’s greatest living auteurs with this long-gestating retelling of France’s infamous Dreyfus Affair. Infusing the story of a Jewish soldier wrongly convicted of treason with an ample helping of political prescience, this feisty courtroom epic centers on Picquart, the head of counter-espionage who discovered the real culprit, and exposed systemic antisemitism within the French military and society at large. Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at Venice.
