Director: Cate Shortland
As the Allies sweep across Germany, teenager Lore leads her siblings on a journey that exposes them to the truth of their parents' beliefs. An encounter with a mysterious refugee forces Lore to rely on a person she has always been taught to hate. This wonderful adaptation of the novel The Dark Room by Rachel Seiffert is a sensual and complex story that explores the tribulations faced by the young in the aftermath of World War II. A coming-of-age tale set against the backdrop of a changing world, Lore shows new life emerging out of darkness with intelligence and subtlety.
