Based on CP Taylor's play, the story follows John Halder, a literary professor in 1930's Germany, who's book on compassionate euthanasia draws some interest from the new Nazi government. Halder's professional and political career rises, and he continues to make more moral compromises -- much to the dismay of his Jewish friend, Maurice, who suffers at the hands of the regime. It's been a pet project for Isaacs for a few years, and saw numerous actors come and go from the part of Halder. Thankfully, the always-perfect Mortensen stuck. I'm dying to see these two onscreen together in what promises to be an excellent and heartbreaking film. I hope we have an American release date soon.
