Synopsis

This biopic documents the work of influential German-Jewish philosopher and political theorist Hannah Arendt. In 1961, Arendt attended the trial of ex-Nazi Adolf Eichmann and reported on it in a piece in "The New Yorker" that was controversial for her portrayal of Eichmann and the Jewish councils, and in which she introduced her famous concept of the "Banality of Evil."
