Critics and movie goers so far have been divided on The Zookeeper’s Wife. Much like other movies centered around secret World War II stories, the performances from Jessica Chastain and Johan Heldenbergh really make this one of the more powerful and meaningful stories about silent heroes. There will be moments where you gasp and others when you’ll tear up. You would expect an intense drama with tons of nail-biting moments, yet this is more about storytelling then action. The Zookeeper’s Wife is really a simple story about a family that was willing to risk everything to help the repressed people in Poland, by opening their raided zoo occupied by Germans.
