In The Fade

"An edge-of-seat thriller. Kruger is superb." The Hollywood Reporter

Showing Times

Inspired by shocking real-life events, this is the story of Katja (Diane Kruger), whose life is torn apart when her husband and young son are suddenly killed in a bomb attack. A police investigation points to a pair of young neo-Nazis, but ultimately Katja is forced to take matters into her own hands.  

Directed by critically acclaimed filmmaker Fatih Akin (The Edge of Heaven), winner of the Best Actress award at Cannes 2017 and the 2018 Golden Globe Award for Best Foreign Language Film - and with a supremely powerful Kruger holding the multi-layered drama together - In the Fade is a timely and urgent drama reflecting the tensions in multi-racial Germany and the rise of fascist movements in response.  And, down from those lofty heights, it's also a story about how far one person may be asked to go to find justice.

Just for the mix, the German name of the film is Aus dem Nichts, roughly translating to 'Out of Nothing'.  We think this is much more descriptive and powerful than this dubious In the Fade, but a rose by any other name...
