Screener Squad: Resistance

Resistance Movie Review


It’s another round of Jesse Eisenberg this week with Resistance. The story follows famous mime artist Marcel Marceau (Jesse Eisenberg), who aided the French resistance alongside a group of Jewish Boy Scouts to save ten thousand orphans during World War II. Sounds like quite the amazing story right? That’s what this movie hopes to shed light on. Mindy and Paloma decide to give voice to this unsung hero’s quest to see if it’s worth telling or if it should take a cue from its real life figure.


DIRECTED BY: Jonathan Jakubowicz

STARRING: Jesse Eisenberg, Ed Harris, Edgar Ramirez, Clemence Poesy, Matthias Schqeighofer, Bella Ramsey, Geza Rohrig, Karl Markovics, Felix Moati, Alicia von Rittberg, Vica Kerekes, Toby Gareth Elman
