SOPHIE SCHOLL – THE FINAL DAYS

What You Need To Know:

In the German movie SOPHIE SCHOLL – THE FINAL DAYS, Sophie and her brother, Hans, are part of a small group of Christians who are trying to instigate a student uprising to overthrow Adolf Hitler’s National Socialist government in 1943. Calling themselves the White Rose, they do this by printing and dispersing leaflets. They are caught by the Gestapo. At first, Sophie denies everything. When she realizes the investigator knows the facts, she challenges him with a very strong evangelistic, Christian, Trinitarian refutation of the Nazi position. She even confronts the trial judge.

The movie SOPHIE SCHOLL has won several awards and is up for an Oscar®. It is overtly Christian, but, more than that, like the movie THE NINTH DAY, it contains tremendous Christian theology as Sophie confronts National Socialism. She even discusses different worldviews. Although their White Rose movement was crushed, it sewed the seeds for eventual victory. The script was adapted from transcripts of the court case, so the dialogue is very authentic. The reason that the movie has gotten so many awards and rave reviews is that it is so well produced. Every element rings true in this must-see movie

More Detail:

Sophie Scholl and her brother, Hans, are part of a small group of Christians who are trying to instigate a student uprising to overthrow Adolf Hitler’s National Socialist Party in 1943. Calling themselves the White Rose, they do this by printing leaflets and handing them out at the university.

At the last moment, they are caught by the Gestapo. At first, Sophie lies and denies everything. When she realizes that her inquisitor knows what she’s been doing, and has documents to prove it, she starts to argue with him and resents a very strong evangelistic, Christian, Trinitarian refutation of the National Socialist position. She even confronts the judge when she is brought to trial.

The movie SOPHIE SCHOLL – THE FINAL DAYS has won several awards and is up for an Academy Award. It is overtly Christian, but more than that, like the movie THE NINTH DAY it contains tremendous theology as Sophie confronts National Socialism. She even discusses the differences between the Christian and the National Socialist worldview. Although their White Rose movement was crushed, it sewed the seeds for eventual victory.

If only the German people today would remember these valiant Christians and how they were given courage by God to confront the forces of evil.

The movie’s script was adapted from transcripts of the court case, so the dialogue is very accurate and authentic. The reason that the movie has gotten so many awards and great reviews is that it is so well produced. Every element rings true.

Once upon a time, Germany set the pace for motion pictures. DOWNFALL, THE NINTH DAY and SOPHIE SCHOLL may be ushering in a new era of excellence. What is amazing is all these movies have strong Christian worldviews.
