Sometimes a patriot is the person who stands up to their country and saids "NO!", when their country is doing wrong. And no, the United States today is no where close to what Nazi Germany was. But if we wait to we are close, or have gone too far down that road before we say no, then it will be too late. The idea is to speak out when we are just starting down that road. Expand

A human drama without any added film dramatizations and all the more chilling because of it. This could happen today in any country unless the people are aware.

A great gift for the kid going to college. Question everything. Know what you believe---and WHY. Then, you, like Sophie Scholl, will know when you must stand up against injustice.

This woman (only 21-22) is one of the most admired persons in Germany. The best part is when she verbally faces off against an experienced Gestapo interrogator!

Julia Jentsch gives a powerful performance, authentic Oscar worthy. The films deserves the Oscar.

interesting and timely. certainly poses some valid questions. Still, I didn't like the acting that much. Lots of tears and some screaming, but not much emotion otherwise. Too many speeches and it seemed like a hagiography far too often. interesting and timely. certainly poses some valid questions. Still, I didn't like the acting that much.

Engrossing and captivating. Uplifting and resolute throughout, this movie is about the triumph of principles and ideals over politics and circumstance. The scenes involving the interrogation of Sophie are so masterfully crafted that you come Engrossing and captivating. Uplifting and resolute throughout, this movie is about the triumph of principles and ideals over politics and circumstance. The scenes involving the interrogation of Sophie are so masterfully crafted that you come to realize that in fact, the balance of power has tipped to Sophie's advantage through the shear strength of her resoluteness and integrity. And not enough can be said for the exquisite attention to nuance and detail, giving the movie a taut sense of precison and purpose. A rare treat, wonderfully told, marvellously understated, and just brimming with meaning. Like one of the previous reviewers - this is my favorite movie of the year as well. Expand

Powerful and frightening and above all still relevant both for Americans today who must defend their freedoms and for Germans to see that good people can flourish against all odds. Amust see history lesson to all the youth.

Amust see history lesson to all the youth. Dramatically gripping to know these were real people. Expand

Anti-war protesters get caught delivering flyers in a University. Get arrested, interrogated, then on trial.
Quite intense dialogue throughout but very well acted & shot. Every film I've seen Julia Jentsch she has been brilliant & this is no
Anti-war protesters get caught delivering flyers in a University. Get arrested, interrogated, then on trial.
Quite intense dialogue throughout but very well acted & shot. Every film I've seen Julia Jentsch she has been brilliant & this is no exception. A mention too for Alexander Held as the cold yet angry Mohr.
You sort of expect what's going to happen but does leave you feeling empty at the end.
