Never Look Away
Opens March 8, 2019
Set in post-war East Germany, Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck's humanist drama follows the lives of a doctor and an artist, both struggling to reconcile their personal aspirations with their country's politics.
Inspired by real events and spanning three eras of German history, Never Look Away tells the story of a young art student, Kurt (Tom Schilling) who falls in love with fellow student, Ellie (Paula Beer). Ellie's father, Professor Seeband (Sebastian Koch), a famous doctor, is dismayed at his daughter's choice of boyfriend, and vows to destroy the relationship. What neither of them knows is that their lives are already connected through a terrible crime Seeband committed decades ago...
