Trailer: Jessica Chastain in “The Zookeeper’s Wife”

Posted on November 19, 2016 at 8:00 am

Diane Ackerman’s book The Zookeeper’s Wife is the amazing true WWII story of Polish zookeepers Jan and Antonina Zabinski. After their zoo was bombed, they managed to save over three hundred people from the Nazis by hiding refugees in the empty animal cages. With animal names for these “guests,” and human names for the animals, the zoo’s code name became “The House Under a Crazy Star.”

Jessica Chastain and Daniel Bruhl star in the upcoming film, coming to theaters March 31, 2017.
