Hannah Arendt, a movie

We watched this movie recently.  If you don't know who Hannah was, this movie will give you a brief glimpse into her life.
Hannah was a very influential German-Jewish philosopher, after WWII she was afforded the opportunity to "cover" the Adolf Eichmann trial in Israel.  After her "banality of evil" concept was brought to the public's awareness, Hannah lost the respect of most of her peers, and became the target of hate mail.

Be sure to watch the Question and Answer portion with the director, screenwriter, the two lead actresses and advisor to the film - this was most insight, and put a whole "new" 
light on Hannah and her beliefs.

This was a really well done movie, and I would watch it again.
