Diane Kruger is unforgettable in a drama about justice and revenge.

Racial and religious tensions propel the new work by award-winning German-Turkish filmmaker Faith Akin (Head-On, 2004; The Edge of Heaven, 2007). German woman Katja is happily married to Turkish immigrant Nuri. A bomb blast kills Nuri and the couple’s son. When Neo-Nazis are arrested the case seems closed. It’s not. Diane Kruger won Best Actress at Cannes for her powerhouse performance as the shattered Katja. It’s a compelling and intelligent examination of the hazy line between justice and revenge.
