An intelligent and gripping portrait of one of the 20th century's foremost thinkers.
The film takes place in the period 1961 - 1964 when Arendt covered the trial of Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann in Jerusalem. The very controversial article she wrote for The New Yorker created scandal around the world and was the origin of the term "banality of evil". The article was also adapted into a book.
