Atlanta Jewish Film Festival – Leopoldstadt

Sir Tom Stoppard’s Olivier-winning play comes to the big screen, in this heartbreaking epic following the crumbling fortunes of an upper-crust Viennese Jewish family across a half century. In late 1899 the lavish Merz home is one of domestic harmony, with blended and assimilated members of every generation gathering ahead of Christmas. As the years rumble by, personal dramas and historical convulsions unfold, from war and revolution to indiscretions and penury, to the Holocaust’s terrifying onset. A late-career masterpiece, Stoppard’s sprawling opus is his most personal, inspired by the playwright’s discovering his Jewish roots. With a staggering 38-actor ensemble, the stunning National Theatre production was filmed in London’s West End prior to its current Broadway run.
