Awarded the Silver Bear for Best Director at Berlin and warmly received by critics at the Telluride, Toronto, and New York film festivals, director Christian Petzold’s skillfully crafted Cold War drama is being hailed as of the best German films of the last decade. BARBARA follows an accomplished Berlin physician (Nina Hoss, A WOMAN IN BERLIN) in 1980s East Germany, banished to a rural hospital as punishment for applying for an exit visa, and torn between the promise of escape across the border and her growing love for a fellow colleague.

"Breakthrough performance of the holiday Season! It is said that some performances carry a film. In ‘Barbara’ Nina Hoss does exactly that."
