Too high on sen­ti­ment

Wishaw Press - - FRONT PAGE - The Zookeeper’s Wife (12)

Jes­sica Chas­tain is the main sell­ing point in this true story of Warsaw zookeep­ers who turned their base­ment into a refuge for Jews in WWII.

The Cal­i­for­nian is bril­liant in a charm­ing tale that’s more up­beat than you’d think, but gets bogged down in sen­ti­ment to rate as one of di­rec­tor Niki Caro’s weaker ef­forts.
